... and some are already. A fine example is The  Gimp (, 
an alternative image manipulation program for Photoshop. Whether it truly can 
replace Photoshop is a long debate, but in itself it's a very good image 
manipulation program. Originally written for *nix, but also running on 
Windows for quite some time now. The Gimp also uses GConf and as such uses 
the same common directories.
