Wow, everything you've said in this post is pretty much wrong.

Same thing goes for most of your other posts. You write a lot but
actually say very little. You clearly don't do any research before you
make your assertions.

I question that you have even used Photoshop, since you seem to think
the half-assed things GimpShop does to emulate Photoshop really makes
PS users comfortable.

Please stop posting to the list, as all you can seem to do is post
misinformation and assertions that you cannot back up.
