Lol ah I see. Guess I'd need to have a computer person help me with that one then.
Install Linux, or install Gimp on OSX? Choose wisely Smile

Lol, can't do that. Since I don't know how to install it. It would be a little pointless to install something that I wouldn't know how to keep up to par. I know more about Windows than that one. Don't know how to make it be a double boot (meaning it runs on Windows and on Linux) either. If I ever wanted to have that done, I'd have to take it in and have it be done by someone who's more versed in computers than I am. I'd hate to have it crash completely and lose my data. That would really suck.

I'd probably go with an Apple and go with Pixlr Smile. Since it works well enough.

That's what backups are meant for. If you PC is stolen or has a hard disk failure, Windows, OSX or Linux will all be in the same boat.

This said, a Linux is not hard to install (in fact in many cases it's easier to install than Windows), and once installed it's completely painless to maintain. Updates are applied automatically, and if you need software, the repository has about everything you need available in a couple of clicks.
