There are alot of graphic designers who have used Photoshop since day 1 and would die before switching. I wouldn’t call myself a graphic designer, but I’ve been using Photoshop since 1998, and I love it. In fact, there’s no way in hell I could switch to The Gimp the way it is right now.
The Gimp developers need to build a Photoshop behavior mode into the Gimp. When active, the Gimp’s user interface would be layed out just like Photoshop’s. Photoshop’s native keyboard shortcuts would all work. Everything would be where a Photoshop user would expect it to be.
This is not unlike what Microsoft did with the Wordperfect compatibility mode in MS Word, and it worked.
