Maybe you'd find it more easy to make the move once for all.
A GNU/Linux desktop is developer friendly, besides being user
There are a handfull of choices you could try not even having to
perform a hard drive install (although you hardly could get to build
GIMP one withtout installing things to hardware.
But it certainly will be much easier to build the GIMP and plug-ins in
a freshly installed GNU/Linux than hunt for all dependencies and
workarounds needed under windows.
You could try getting yourself a UBUNTU CD, for example (you can order
then for free at shipit.ubuntu.org, but there would be faster ways
for you to get then), or some other distribution that you could get a
nearby friend to help you with. Most distributions are downloadable
for free at all.
Sorry if this seems O.T. but I am really interested in heling you, and
I do not think that holding back to windows is a good way to start.
