Last time I used a Mac, the "GIMP on OS X" link from
http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/ seemed like the most user-friendly option
to me. Leopard and newer have X11 included, so it's only the one
download, and http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Photo_editing.html says
Resynthesizer etc. is included, so you get lots of plugins that you'd
have to download and install one by one on Windows[1].

If you want the 2.7 beta, I guess you'll have to compile / use MacPorts.
