Gimp vs Photoshop

Gimp vs Photoshop

Gimp vs Photoshop

I've been a Photoshop user for a long time but I'm considering Gimp when CS6 will no longer work on my machine.

I am using the XP-Pen Deco Pro drawing tablet for Photoshop

Photoshop has a steep learning curve and I understand that Gimp does also. This doesn't bother me. I'm just wondering about the feature comparison.

Photoshop is pretty much all 16bit internally, what about Gimp?
What about raw camera support?
I use the Healing Brush quite often, does Gimp have an equivalent feature?
What about support for HDR, panorama stitching, or focus stacking?
Does Gimp scale well on hi-res monitors?
Run on Windows 10?
I'm not sure what else I should be asking about. What are some often used features that will go missing when I switch to Gimp?
