Linux "Linux App Finder's mission is to catalog useful GNU/Linux programs and provide a great resource to discover new apps". The programs are organized in categories to browse the collection. It has an alternatives page to find an equivalent Linux app to replace your Windows or OS X app when you make that switch. The app's page has user submitted screenshots and a research section where links to reviews for that app is provided.

The Photoshop "alternatives" were humorous. There really should be a bare minimum for what can be considered an alternative. Barring that, possibly a list of what's missing in the Linux versions.

you can't use one single app to replace all that photoshop does - i fail to see why this matters.

It matters because when someone says "These are Photoshop Alternatives." I expect them to be Photoshop alternatives.

That's why they are "alternatives" and not "equivalents." No one app on any OS can match Photoshop overall, but if you are a Photoshop user and looking for "alternatives" then the listed apps could be potential solutions.
