"Not a match for Photoshop 6" ... come on  :)

 

I have been a Photoshop user all my life, using it for both to create artwork for digital and print. I have stopped buying it since CS4 - as I never had the need to buy each and every version, so the Adobe CC thing is completely useless for me. I have been hoping that a new product comes along which is a good alternative the PS affordable, and can handle Pantone and CMYK. Affinity Photo is exactly what I want. Sure it is still a bit rough around the edges, has bugs, and is still a way off, but what the heck, at the price it is a steal! Cannot wait until it goes gold  :) (any idea when this is planned to happen?)

Judging by that topic, Everblue meant it as a metaphor. The discussion was about Affinity Photo matching the quality of Adobe Photoshop. He meant when it comes to a match.

I think from the context Everblue is talking about Affinity Photo for Windows. The first beta version recently became available, thus the "still a bit rough around the edges" comment.

 

In the software industry, beta software versions are often made available so volunteers not working for the company can test them for bugs & report any they find so the developers can fix them in the next beta. The process continues until a beta is bug free enough to become a release candidate, often identified with an "RC" suffix. When a RC is released as a finalized product, it is known as a "golden master," or "GM" version, thus the "goes gold" comment.

In that case, Designer just became a gold master. It is finally available for purchase for Windows.
