Right. It all depends on what you need. I know people who would be SOL
without Photoshop, but they're doing way more than dinking around with
screen captures or basic photo handling.

True, but you can't knock them for including products that they
actually make and not including products that they not only don't make
but directly compete with theirs. If the TCS isn't a fit for you,
don't buy it. Likewise, I have yet to buy an island in the Caribbean.
It just doesn't make sense for me. My family house on Cape Cod works
just fine for my needs.
