If this is true, the why does Photoshop win every time when someone
asks which package people would most like porting to Linux?

Don't get em wrong. GIMP is a very good product, but Photoshop is the
more sophisticated package. It's also the more expensive - much more
expensive. Whether you need to pay the price for it depends on how
sophisticated your needs are. There are a lot of people whose needs go
well in advance of anything GIMP has to offer, and there are a lot of
people whose needs don't. You have to make up your own mind which large
crows you belong to.

Just for the record, I'm a fence-sitter. I still have Photoshop 6,
bought before I started to use Linux. But I use GIMP a lot so that I
don't have to do things on two machines,
 All the best,
