I have used GIMP layers for many years. They're good and convenient. But with rare exceptions (like text layers), GIMP layers don't allow the user to make non-destructive edits.

Whatever you do on a layer, stays on that layer, so in that respect they are 100 % non-destructive. If you want to undo, just delete the layer.

I am not sure if Gimp has pure adjustments layers like PaintShop Pro or Photoshop, but that's another story.

Last I checked, it did not.

I don't understand the critique. Non-destructive editing is unnecessary when you are working with JPEG or TIFF, preserving the original, and exporting to a more Web friendly format.

Even though it supports UFRAW, GIMP was never intended as a Raw processor. If you want that, use Darktable etc. Like Photoshop and unlike Lightroom, GIMP is a raster editor. From what I've heard, never tried myself, Affinity isn't great as a Raw processor either.
