whos running Gimp on Windows
just wondering does running Gimp on Windows make things more difficult?
I'm running Win 7 64bit although I am using the 32 bit Gimp, will Gimp run better on Linux operating systems if so which one, would like to be able to dual boot along with Win7 & I have my hard drive partitioned so I dont think it would be super difficult

RE: whos running Gimp on Windows
I have some Gimp scripts available on Sourceforge and 80% of the users are on Windows. Gimp runs pretty well on Windows, and as much as I like Linux using Gimp isn't a a major reason to switch (there are plenty other good reasons thoughSmile). On the other hand while I was on Windows, sticking to Gimp and other opensource software (Hugin, Qtpfsgui,...) made the transition to Linux completely painless. I quit Windows like I quit smoking. Feeling uneasy for two days, having withdrawal symptoms for a month, but now living a new life.

Running 64Bit OSes isn't very helpful unless you have at least 8GB of memory.

I have 6GB memory, setting up Gimp in a linux system isn't too painful is it.

You extra 2GB just compensate the additional space taken by 64 bit applications...

On most Linux distros, Gimp is standard. But you can also shun the "official" version and make your own from the latest tarballs or even from the source repository.
