GIMP is the horrible user interface. Are you ever going to upgrade it?

We've been gradually improving it since 2006. I'm sorry to hear that
you haven't even noticed that.

I'm going with "accidental troll."  Some people think anything that isn't what they expect is bad.  
Personally, I'm pretty cool with GiMP's UI.  I know where just about everything is and I know where to find 
what I'm looking for.  I don't see anything wrong with it.  And after playing with the single window 
interface for a bit, I went back to multiple windows.  I like multiple windows... works great for multiple 
monitors or for making the most of smaller displays.

And if someone comes in and says "it should be more like..." I'm just going shake my head.  I don't know 
photoshop all that well.  When I tried to use it, it simply lacked the usability I have with GiMP.  
Photoshop's UI, therefore, sucks.  How do you like them apples?  And seriously, what's with the way Photoshop 
does layers?  When I create a new layer, I want control over the size, shape, color and all that. Sorry...
