Well, its the best free paint programm out there that I know of. Sure
some people might claim its not, but after all I don't really see any
big difference between an image manipulation programm and a paint
programm, beside that the first category might have less features (I
still miss a easy way to simply create new brushes...).

Which one would that be? Sure for vector graphics there is Sketch and
Sodipodi, but for game/pixel graphics?

Yep, the problem is a bit deeper, but they still help a lot to get the
job done. Its just quicker to mouse-over for a sec than to launch a
webbrowser and searching google for a while.
