No, they're not. Much as I love GIMP (and that's quite a lot), it's
just not as capable as Photoshop. Sure, for 95% of the population,
the two are essentially equivalent because they both do what's needed.
But for the remaining 5%, Photoshop really does have features that
GIMP doesn't and thus it isn't a suitable replacement. It should
be said that there are a few features GIMP has that are lacking in
Photoshop, too, but there are far fewer of those.
