Linux Mint 19.3 chose this as an alternative to GIMP, which they are no longer installing by default. It's barely comparable, really, if anything it should be included as a GIMP alternative only since a major distribution considers it to be so.

This is a very basic app, and does not allow the use of layers. Perhaps the reason for its choice for inclusion by Mint is that there are few user-friendly graphics apps on the Gnome Desktop. Luckily, users of Gnome can install KDE apps like Krita with much more functionality.

That's one particular distro's problem. Why give this app a poor rating. It does what it's supposed to do.

Perhaps you are right, and now I see it is not listed as an alternative to GIMP. Alas, if it is being compared with the likes of photoshop or gimp, it doesn't deserve a high rating, but as I couldn't remove the one-star rating, entirely, in the interest of fairness, I will leave it with 5.
