I use gimp exclusivley, and have no experience with Photoshop (I dont have a Windows or Mac system, so I dont see it as an option). I'm curious to see how it compares, just out of curiosity, from the "other" perspective... especially as anti-unix zealots often drag me into conversations comparing applications, which is not really where my intrests lie (sigh).

Yes, please... usage issues aside, how does the output of the files compare? I havent examined them closley enough to know... I'm all ears :)

I thought it was - just my personal opinion. It seems to be somewhat of a flagship program.
