General Discussion

The Gimp Interface article

has attracted respectful disapproval. It's nice to have an active comments section but its clear on watching the video that its opinionated and somewhat anti-Gimp.

Perhaps I have based my comments too much on my own experience and not enough on a cool-headed assessment.
