Comment on "The Wrong Way for the Right Reasons"
by Chuck — Nov 20
Believe me, I and many other developers would love to write a true Creative Suite alternative, but it just ain't practical. Photoshop alone has been shaped by some very talented developers for nearly 20 years now. No one schmoe working by himself or even a few schmoes working together is going to replace that. The GIMP folks have come the closest (after 10 years of work), but even that isn't really a Photoshop replacement in anybody's mind.

Even if you did write an app that was as good as Photoshop for, say, a subset of Photoshop's tasks, I wonder if there would be much of a market. Most pros would still use Photoshop, I imagine.
