Depends on your perception of 1px. and why your concerned with insisting on 1px or I suppose smaller :/

Yes it's about printing but also about High resolution quality images and or the lack of having any high resolution images to see the difference in pixels on the same Zoom rate.
Cheers.

A pixel is the smallest unit when you are editing a picture right? I just wanted to hear if there is a smaller unit. For example in gimp, the smallest pen size is 1.0 pixel.

That's because there is nothing smaller than a pixel. Of course as I said earlier the physical size of a pixel is relative to your screen size and the resolution it dispays.

This was the closet thing I could come in what I was looking for.

The software Pixelformer, enables you to use the function 'Supersampled', so you can make "smaller pixels" than normal, without using any zoom-function.

When you export the file and open it in GIMP, MS Paint etc. the pixels are the regular size, and shows the dominant colour of the combined 'supersampled pixel'.

I drew a pixel line in MS Paint, then viewed it in Photoshop CC. In this snip PS can zoom in a bit more, but it's still the smallest unit to work with in either program. A pixel is a pixel.

Super sample sounds like Resampling an image keeping the original size but adding more pixels,
I already mentioned Resampling the image to something higher 300-600 ppi/ dpi and keeping the original size.
That forces the program ps/ gimp.. to add more pixels.

Photoshop joke/true story -

Lady shows pic of her house to a Photoshop dude. There's a trashcan in front of the house spoiling the pic.

'Can you remove the trashcan ?'

'Sure'

'Fantastic. You'll be able to see my dog - he was behind the trashcan'

ThrashZone refers to resampling to higher res - you can't invent data (like the dog ^^).
