Well, I've been using it here and there, a little bit of this, a little bit of that -- for several years, and still can't make it feel comfortable. E.g. those small windows always try to lurk away somewhere behind all those Firefoxes and other windows -- without even being on the task bar, and each time before starting to duly minimize everything in order to find them back I feel like banging my head on the wall. It was said many times that GIMP has usability problems -- and answered that it's a matter of taste and habit, but I've got to say it just doesn't feel that way to me. I've used Photoshop much less than GIMP, but from what I've experienced it really is much more handy.
That said, GIMP does seem like the best thing available for Linux. There was also (a non-free) Pixel, but well, that's a *long* story, and everyone who knows it would understand the pun.
