I would disagree with you, even the current GIMP is not par with Photoshop 7.
https://wiki.gimp.org/wiki/Roadmap , if you take a look carefully under the 3.2
section, you would find a couple of common things which were there in
Photoshop 7 but still not there in the current GIMP.

You mean Pixeluvo right? If it is Pixeluvo, then sadly I have to disagree with you
again. The free version was just a 30 day trial, it is only available for Linux and Windows,
haven't tried all the features but can say it for sure that the GUI was not a 1:1 clone,
though pretty close.
