Actually - no. I don't think so... as I haven't ever seen something in Photoshop you couldn't do with Gimp. It may be so if the Windows-compiled package doesn't come with the plugins which are usually included for Unix-Systems (hence, you'd have to download and install them yourself), but generally, Gimp is the only Image Manipulator setting no limits (though, I agree that you need to be a bit more programming-experienced to break certain limits you seem to have as a regular user, but those are not more than in the highly overpaid commercial programs).

That, however, hasn't to be addressed to Gimp. That's primarily because Unix-philosophy (window-manager-wise) differs from Windows. Windows users generally have a problem with Gimp's multi-windows interface, as they don't figure out what comforts such an interface actually offers.

Talking about "OpenSource" on that field, I have to correct you: it's the only one. Other OpenSource solutions can't really do more than MS Paint.

Or I'm just more used to using photoshop :P
But I do think GIMP's only advantage over PS is that it's free. Because we can't really count on plugins, those are avaiable for both programs, even if for PS you may have to pay, yet, for me, that isn't a problem ^_^
