Which OS do you use GIMP on?

Question Which OS do you use GIMP on?
Personally I use it on both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux, however the Windows copy of GIMP is used most frequently.

Please let others know which operating system you use GIMP on.

My main machine is Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32bit and I run Gimp on there, but rarely as my windows machine has some problems.

I'm primarily a Linux user, and I run Gimp on Linux Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 32bit at the moment, and I love it, not just Gimp, but Linux too! Big Grin

RE: Which OS do you use GIMP on?
I use a Mac, in fact I only use Macs. But like I have said in other posts the tools you use have nothing to do with your abilities. I also use Final Cut Pro, After Effects, PS, etc, etc. I found Gimp 6 months and have given at least 100 Demo Cd's to young people. I do demos for small groups at their homes. My goal is simply to get as many young people into the Multimedia Industry as I can. It is the fastest growing in the US and there is no better program to start with. Maybe if you like it so well you might show at last one more young person how much fun this kind of stuff can be. Maybe even two.

RE: Which OS do you use GIMP on?
I am currently running GIMP 2.8.0 on Windows XP, Service Pack 3. My computer is literally twelve-years-old, so I am in desperate need for a new one. When I get a new computer, I would like to have it run both Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux.

RE: Which OS do you use GIMP on?
Btw, if I believe the Sourceforge download stats for my scripts:

Windows: 70.93%
Linux: 24.98%
Macintosh: 2.60%
(rest is unknown, BSD, or even Androïd)

(since these are Python scripts, the stats are likely biased towards Linux, where Python is installed by default).

When you get a new computer, why don't you just install something like Lubuntu on your old one? There's a good chance it may run slicker than it did with XP - no reason to get rid of an older, working computer.

I use, depending on the computer, Vista64, Windows 7 64, Lubuntu, Linux Mint, and sometimes even Puppy Linux for the REALLY OLD computers.

I use a Mac... and personally I find it the best operating system, but it does lag quite a bit Confused

RE: Which OS do you use GIMP on?
99.99% of the time it's Linux for me, so that's how I voted.

But I also installed it on my work computer (Windows XP Pro) and had it for five years before I left, using it almost every day, and I installed it on SWMBO's MacBook.

So that puts me down for all three platforms... do I win a prize?
