BTW, I do not like the word "competing", because IMHO the Linux-world
suffers from all kinds of competing software (GNOME vs. KDE, etc).
Nevertheless I will try to create another setup-file to install The GIMP for
I am currently looking at creating a setup-file using Nullsoft's "SuperPIMP"
install system (NSIS) -> http://www.nullsoft.com/free/nsis/
I am new to this; does anyone has experience with this package ?

Could the original creator of the GimpWin-installation (I think it is Tor)
please send me the source of his setup-file ? I guess that would make life

Currently I am aiming to include just the files as in the current
GIMPwin-release. To avoid the discussion about what should (not) be included
with the GIMP-installation... I have seen that discussion on gimp-developer,
but missed any outcome of it (assuming it had some kind of a conclusion).
