I found this article today with a good list of alternate open source software for those that can't afford the commerical software. It's a good list but not entirely the most accurate. Just read the comments at the end.

"Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
 Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
 Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things."

I spent three hours trying to get LAMP installed on Ubuntu 11.04 and I'm not exactly new to Linux. I really like using Ubuntu, it's faster than Window on my system, and not too far behind with my Macbook. However, I should not be spending that much time installing software. On Windows it's a one or two click deal with WAMP. With that being stated, that list seems very subjective...

BTW: you cannot compare Gimp to PhotoShop
