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.

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

Dude, its Free Software.

The point isn't to be functional, useful, elegant, efficient, or appropriately represented. The Kernel Devs do that.

In userland apps its all about the fanboi-ism. Free Love, Free Beer, Free Software. (If you're mad about the software not doing anything right - you need more of the first two.)

I don't think that any single person needs to replace every single feature in Photoshop. But I agree that there are many features in PS that doesn't exist in the alternatives.
However, if the user doesn't need those features then why can't gimp or pixel be direct replacements?

I found it odd that they tried to list alternatives to Fireworks though since there really aren't any alternatives to that one, not even on Win or Mac.
