are you saying 188 _feet_ ? That would make about 162000 pixels of
image height. How wide are these images? If I'd assume the same width,
a single RGB layer would have more than 75GB of image data. Your
operating system is not even able to address the amount of virtual
memory you'd need to work with such a beast.

this is not true; actually the situation is the other way around.
While GIMP-1.2 needed real porting work, all the libraries required by
GIMP-1.3 now officially support the Win32 platform and it shouldn't be
too difficult to get the GIMP-1.3 source compiled on Windows.
