Google Google is funding work to ensure the Windows version of Adobe Systems' Photoshop and other Creative Suite software can run on Linux computers. "We hired CodeWeavers to make Photoshop CS and CS2 work better under Wine," Dan Kegel, of Google's software engineering team and the Wine 1.0 release manager, said on Google's open-source blog. "Photoshop is one of those applications that desktop Linux users are constantly clamoring for, and we're happy to say they work pretty well now... We look forward to further improvements in this area."

Pixel: yup, I actually shelled out for this "cross-platform" kit, and found it lived up to that claim at least: it crashes constantly both on Windows and Linux. The bugreports I raised haven't had an answer in nearly two years... I still don't know how other people have such good experience with this POS ;)

GIMP: I think previous posters have covered quite comprehensively the downsides of GIMP (or at least, why it ain't no Tattyshop). And on a purely personal note I still find the UI fugly.

If Google want to throw some cash around, they should help out the Mono hackers who are working on porting Paint.NET (rumour has it this is nearly done already, mind). PDN is a terrific photo editor, maybe not on a par with Tattyshop, but its featureset is growing all the time and it has a UI that more Windows-refugees will be able to get their wee heads around.

I have only tried out the trial version, but I actually liked it very much. Atleast I like it a LOT better than Gimp ;) I just find the UI so.. Well, it sucks :/
