No linux, though.

That's often the kicker.

It's not so much the basic interface - most programs seem to be
converging in that respect, Windows or Linux - it's the little things,
the tips, tricks and gotchas where one must become accustomed to one set
of peculiarities, then re-acclimatize after booting into the other OS or
moving to the other computer.

That's just one reason why I like in the office-suite
space. Not just the interface remains the same. All the other subtlties
(and yes, some stupidities) are common from one OS to the next.

You're right about The GIMP being confusing. I've still got about 99.4
percent of The GIMP to learn, which is why I'm looking for something
lighter. I want a tool, not a project. :-)

Try Serif Photo Plus 6.0. It's cheap as free. I like it - it's intuitive
and fairly powerful. Does what I want better than Paint Shop Pro without
being as confusing as The GIMP (to me, anyway). It's not nearly as
bulky, either.
