We can't reach for a conclusion like that. There are deifnitely  better
photo editors like photoshop. Perhaps what canonical is trying is to move
forward. I think energy should be used to port the best of software  to
ubuntu desktop in every catagory. Gimp is just used for photoediting which
is just a type of software.
                                      I mean whole debate about evoulution,
thunderbird  or any other software is debatable. What I care about is just I
can install ubuntu effortlessly and install those software which I like to
use in every catagory.
                                     One last point I would like to make is
that slimming down Ubuntu or bloating it should not depend on bandwidth.
