Actually Ben, graphic artists seldom use menus to do their work. Most of
them use keyboard shortcuts. I am not sure how close the keyboard
shortcuts in GIMP are to that of Photoshop. So the rotating that took
you fifteen steps in Photoshop might just take two clicks and two key
press to a veteran Photoshop user.
I think the "familirity factor" or the "comfort zone" thing offered by
Photoshop might be one of the factors that graphic artists find it hard
to change to GIMP.
