I can honestly say that I previously did not know that bit of trivia. I must not get out much...

Before I got into Linux, I told my friends about this free version of Photoshop called "The GIMP".
They laughed.
So did I.
We were very young and immature then :D

In all seriousness a lot of people think GIMP will never get the support it needs, or become a mainstream alternative to Photoshop, until it changes the name. While the name doesn't really bother me, I guess I would go along with that. I can't imagine any schools in the English speaking countries asking their kids to use GIMP, what with gimp being a common school yard insult to call someone.

I dont think the developers will ever change the name though. It's going to take a fork or Krita becoming a more popular app for the problem to be solved.
