When 1.0 came out, several magazines reviewed GIMP.  At least a few
said that it held up quite well to Photoshop in everything except
prepress.  Strangely enough, Adobe is currently doing its best to
alienate the prepress crowd, so I suspect GIMP is well-poised to move
into this field if it wanted to.
