On UDS-L they decided that Gimp will be removed from default installation of next coming Ubuntu 10.04 The Lucid Lynx, OMG!
For You who don't know Gimp is a free software graphics editor, AKA windows Photoshop.
Over three posts I'll present the main ideas and discussions from these meetings: Whittling the default game selection down, removing GIMP from default installs & what best to use for photo-editing and the (slightly odd) decision to potentially include PiTiVi as a default application in Lucid Lynx...
And they all based on this "funny" facts:
- the general user doesn't use it - I use it, and am general user.
- its user-interface is too complex - lol!
- it's an application for professionals - so what?
- desktop users just want to edit photos and they can do that in F-Spot - what is F-Spot?, I don't use this program they should remove it instead Gimp.
- it's a photoshop replacement and photoshop isn't included by default in Windows... - This is Ubuntu not windows, it should be different and not same.
- it takes up room on the disc - then use DVD and no CD...
They are are making a mistake I cant say that!
