With free software that has no "phone back" feature you have no way to
estimate if downloaded software is used at all or if there's a hype
going on. Hence viability of GIMPshop is merely a speculation. The
same applies to GIMP as well.

I think I can freely speak for the majority of the team here: we do
not define GIMP as a project that aims to dethrone Photoshop. You are
of course at liberty to disagree with our project vision.

The reason it never happened is because noone cares enough to go ahead
and do that. So much for "millions" of people waiting for a miracle.

By all means, please go ahead and fork GIMP :)
