one of the least discussed or researched is probably how useable
products that work on other operating systems is to linux users.
another way to say that is this:
what about how usable photoshop is for someone who knows only TheGIMP?
TheGIMP is not photoshop. it was written so that linux people would not
not have to use a different operating system and/or steal.
you make gimp race on a playing field it never was meant to be on and i
dont see anyone testing the competitor on TheGIMP's home field.
what would the point of such a race be?
