Graphics, User Interfaces It's here: the GIMP 2.8. Its biggest feature is something that many, many people have been requesting for as long as I can remember: single-window mode. No longer do you have to fiddle with a gazillion palette and dialog windows (unless you choose to do so, of course). Great work by the team.

A crucial advantage of Pixelmator over GIMP is that it uses Cocoa. Apple made it so hard to port multiplatform software to OSX that GIMP is likely to suck forever there, unless someone pushes a fork with a Cocoa interface, like Seashore but less simplistic.

OSX's implementation of X11 is so broken and inconsistent with the rest of the OS that it's not even funny.
