"GIMP is not LAME: Computer geeks think they are funny, and that how we end up with names like GIMP and LAME. GIMP is short for GNU Image Manipulation Program. LAME is a recursive acronym for LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder. Together they form my mildly amusing subheading. At any rate, whatever the shortcomings of the name, GIMP is an excellent open source painting, drawing, and image editing program. It is free of cost and runs on Linux, Mac, and Windows, and supports a number of drawing tablets like Wacom.
