The GIMP probably is going to require a very *long* learning curve. It
has the power of
Adobe Photoshop and may not be something casual users are going to want
to take the time to learn. I like GThumb and I use it most of the time
for simple things. My wife has tried a bunch of applications
and she  likes Picasa and that's what she uses now.  As I recall, on Linux,
Picasa does install with a slimmed down version of WINE that Google
supplies with it.
