GIMPshop – A gimp in photoshop's clothing

Here’s GIMPshop, a version of the GIMP that looks like Photoshop. It’s a 40MB download for the Mac OS X version.
I’d hate to have to maintain this beast…

What made this project especially difficult is that there isn’t one file that holds all of Gimp’s tool names and menu structure. I’ve modified hundreds of files and combed thousands of lines of code to make this version of Gimp a reality.

There’s an RPM binary here for Linux users. To be honest I could never find my way around the Photoshop interface as I’m so used to the GIMP one, but whatever brings people into the fold…

Hah, that’s just what I need to work on my website. Does anybody know if there are any plug ins for GIMP?

I am looking at gimp and gimpshop. It seems like there is more documentation for gimp. I have never used photo shop. Would be better to stick with GIMP?
