Gimp takes getting used to, but is a great tool. I use it mostly to make pixel art though, so I don't use most of the features.

Like he said. Gimp Is free software unlike Photoshop.
Paint.NET is also free, IL never use paint.NET software

Eh, I prefer Paint.Net. Photoshop is bloated as hell, and GIMP's interface is atrocious.

I too prefer Paint.Net, it's easy to use and sufficient for my needs. I tried GIMP too, but couldn't figure out a thing and the floating windows just confused me more. Removed it after sometime, a bit too complicated in my opinion.

well the question is not really witch one is the best because you gotta admit it, they all do the same job in different ways but what really matter is witch one suits you the best.

I use photoshop/illustrator on a daily basis for work... both are extremely complete softwares,(Illustrator is at last integrated in the range and start to feel comfortable to use...) but if you do not wish to pay the atrocious fees that Adobe sets on its users, go for GIMP!

And if you do pixel arts, avoid big softwares and download GaphicsGale, it has everything you need, and is fully customisable.
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog

Personnally i have no problem with GIMP interface, its pretty much like blender interface imo,
it may look a bit "WTF" when you first try it, then you set all windows like you want, become familiar with
keyboard shortcuts and you work 2-3 times faster than usual, with everything you need at hand =)

GIMP can also use photoshop brushes and photoshop plugins (with the pspi plugin), wich is a very big advantage
(Ive seen paint.net can also use photoshop brushes but it seems a bit buggy)

The only thing that piss me off in GIMP are these damn floating windows who doesnt reduce when you reduce the main window, i really hate that

Can't say about photoshop, never tried it >.<

PS. Gimp 2.8 will have a single window mode, and lots of new features

One of the developers calculated the 10. October 2011 as the release date for 2.8

The other versions to come are also very interesting. From what I see, starting with v3.4 it will be a full Photoshop clone (in the good sense). I just say: automatic layer boundaries, auto-anchoring and layer effects ;)
