Question: Are Open Source softwares as capable as commercial paid softwares? We can do the same thing in both softwares? If yes, then why people use & prefer, for example, Photoshop, rather than using GIMP?

    People will still pay for Photoshop for example, because it behaves like Photoshop rather than Gimp, even if Gimp can technically do everything that they use PS for (which isn't to say that it can do everything PS can -- I have no idea whether that's true, I'd imagine that PS and Gimps feature sets overlap highly but not completely).
