Last time I used a Mac, the "GIMP on OS X" link from seemed like the most user-friendly option
to me. Leopard and newer have X11 included, so it's only the one
download, and 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.
