Not asking what is available, but what you are using for your photography.

I have been using GIMP since 2.4, when on Linux it became better than Photoshop CS2 on Windows. By better I mean faster starting, easier to use, with superior JPEG encoding. GIMP 2.6 was even better, and works very well on Windows, as does 2.8.

One of the main reasons I finally had to give up Ubuntu Lucid and switch to something newer was that I wanted GIMP 2.8. It wasn't available for Lucid.

GIMP 2.8 is superior to 2.6 AFAIC. I especially like the new single window mode.

P.S. Mrs. Fixit is correct - I had Xubuntu mixed up with Kubuntu because both are based on the X11 windowing system, I think.

Xubuntu and Kubuntu are vastly different animals... but yes they're both X11.
