I like GIMP, but Photoshop does not become obsolete, but GIMP is 
catching up quite well. I use GIMP quite a bit, just hate the interface, 
other then that it's perfect for me.

As far as OCR there really isn't a good OCR software for linux at this 
point. I research it quite well, for a project for a friend, and the 
only production quality option available at the moment is ViviData, but 
it is ungodly expensive. JOCR isn't even close to production quality. I 
have tried others as well, no luck. But that's should soon be corrected 
because ScanSoft is working on a Linux copy of Omnipage, which is by far 
the best OCR software on the market right now. So I shell be totally 
happy soon :) Well, I'll also need a TTS client, don't like festivals 
TTS. But SAPI5 from M$ sucks just the same.

BTW, another reason why M$ sucks. SAPI4 was written by a contractor, 
L&H, for M$ and sounds perfect, SAPI5 was rewritten by M$ from ground up 
and sounds horrible! Ignore the last bit if you are not a TTS geek.
