With good brands it happens often the other way - Xerox comes to mind
immediatelly. But there are many more such examples.

My experience is that many people around me mix all the similar names
- Photoshop, PhotoPaint, Paint Shop Pro etc...

This happens to me every other day:
"I would like to fix those red eyes, how do I do it?"
"What program do you use?"
"Adobe PhotoPaint."


"Photoshop Pro"

This does not happen with the Gimp.
