I'm pretty confident that "die GIMP" (female) is wrong, it's either "der GIMP" (male) or "das GIMP" (no gender). I'd say it is "das GIMP" because the P stands for program which has no gender and for acronyms typically the last word determines the gender. However since no article is not a problem at all in most cases I'd rather go with this.... -- Servus, Daniel
