I have to agree with the review. I have been using Photoshop for most of those 30 years. For heavy duty photo processing nothing is its twin.

I used to use GIMP. Switched to PS because PS did more that I needed. However, GIMP is still pretty good and is a good free way to learn about layers and masks. The UI is very different from PS, so there is a learning curve if you want to switch.

I would expect that GIMP has increased its capabilities in the decade since I switched to PS, but then so has PS.
