While I sympathise with the Gimp folk in that most of their usability
feedback comes from people who cant get past their MS/Apple/Adobe 
indoctrination, I think its very telling that you got a better reception 
from Inkscape - a fine piece of software.

Useability work is very important and unfortunately very *difficult*.
Often frustrating and unrewarding Too. Dont be put off by
overreactions from persons who you rub the wrong way - perhaps better 
not to engage these people, and instead concentrate on the positives. 

Good luck.
