Having used both to a fair extent, I would strongly disagree. I find
GIMP to be capable of everything I need in a way of graphic editing,
while Photoshop either hides it away in weird ways (just rotating a
picture in a default Photoshop setup takes about fifteen steps - if you
can even puzzle out where it's hidden) or simply did not have it.
For those who are misled by GIMP's simple appearance, take a read of
"Grokking the GIMP" - a free book that is a package in at least Debian -
for a knockout review of its capabilities.
