Assuming that by "high priced commercial version" you mean Photoshop,
two details:

* GIMP developers and many GIMP users are not expecting to replace
Photoshop in any way.
* It's very unprobable that you can find a bunch of applications that
can replace everything that Photoshop can do.

For many of us, GIMP is free software and Photoshop isn't. Full stop.

Cordially, Ismael
