Though this is a troll, and I usually dont respond to them, this one grabbed my

even windows or mac users should ever be forced to use such a shitty product.

Actually, I wonder if mac users is our largest user base. More graphic artists
are on macs, not windows.

gimp isnt a _anything_ product. It works on any operating system that has a
sane gcc and sane gtk. Blame the people for prorting gcc and gtk to win32.
