Why is it that true believers feel the need to replace every last proprietary app? vmware, skype, and google earth are best-of-breed and free-as-in-beer.
I can understand why things like openoffice are needed as they provide a linux replacement for ms office. Things like the Gimp make sense because they are free-libre and free-beer compared to photoshop which is neither, and not even available for Linux.
