The previous person is assuming that the previous person only knows and is comfortable with Photoshop and assuming the previous person is not happy with the GIMP is not 100% Photoshop.

There are a lot of people out there who have only experienced Photoshop and are ignorant of other programs. This does not get the GIMP off the hook for being the worst art program in history with the exception of M$ Paint (which isn't an art program in any sense of the word). So in listing many of the programs I am used to kills many of the standard arguments that "GIMP Lovers" bring to the discussion. GIMP lovers all seem to be non artists. It is not surprising that they are happy with the limited toolset and a UI that has to have been designed by a spastic orangutan on hormone replacement therapy.
