Same would be true for any other application, including GIMP.

FWIW, I prefer Photoshop. I can just about manage to get things done in GIMP, but it's not a pleasure; the UI is an utter mess. Not talking about it being different from PS, but about it being an utter mess all on it's own merits.

And I would love for old Paint Shop Pro to return instead of the crappy instagram-like PSP it's degraded into.
Seriously; why did they Corel mangle PSP so badly?
Old PSP was truely "Cheap Photoshop without the color management stuff few people need and even less people know how to use".

What the poster wants doesn't sound like a Wiki at all.
Unless he wants ALL other random people to add, change and update information, he would be better off using any random CMS.
Wiki's trade content creation features for maintenance/editing features.
Content in a Wiki is easy to change and hard to make look perfect.
If you want perfect looking content and don't need the ability for anybody to change content in a few seconds, don't use a Wiki.

They are indeed free to do so just like you and me.
But it's not part of their job and they have no more legal standing to do so than you or I.
So in proposing laws they are NOT acting as a territorial police force of sworn constables, they are in fact acting as a corporate lobbying group.

City of London Police when enforcing laws = territorial police force of sworn constables.
City of London Police when proposing laws = corporate lobbying group.
It's important to distinguish these two roles and their difference.
