    I cant professionally speak on this because Im not a professional. The general consensus I get from those who are is this:
    "Anything you can do with Photoshop, you can do with GIMP. But like all things in the linux world, its more difficult"
    That always makes me laugh.

    I think most graphics people are probably frustrated with gimp because its hard to configure and install in windows. I've tried it and its a nightmare compared to photoshops give-me-1000s-of-dollars-and-it-will-just-work thing theyve got going on.

    If it WAS a pro, I would deal with gimp though, and save my money.

    I don't think gaming is that important to most people, only the very loud and the early adopters. once we're past this phase you'll find most new users don't play games or find the games available in Linux to be superior in the types of games they play (puzzle games etc)

    Pretty much nothing IMHO.
    However, you'll have some headache trying to make some specific thing working on GNU/Linux.
    There should be GUI for everything on Linux because GUI describe itself clearly, while command-line is hard to understand and follow.

    If you were a pro you would have bought and used Photoshop.

    I was responding to this statement:
    Most people will prefer shooters and racing games to puzzle games.
    not this one
    Most gamers will prefer shooters and racing games to puzzle games.

    the planet with 97% of all the other 'non gamers' who I'd rather spend time making software for. as a programmer I'd rather build a nice puzzle game that 3 million people enjoy than a shoot em up that 3 thousand could enjoy. please read aysiu's link, we ain't making this up your just wrong about gamers and games in general.
