I don't use Windows, but this seems to be an eternal problem.
So I set about going through the motions of downloading a windows version
Start at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
Then "Show other downloads"
Comment: This assumes that if a Windows version is not in the main listing, it
must be in "Other downloads"
I do not believe this to be user friendly to Windows users, particularly as
they probably make up 80% of users?
But then having got to the Windows section, the first line reads;
The Windows installer packages by Jernej Simončič are distributed from the
GIMP HTTP server (download.gimp.org) and its mirror servers
Comment: Clicking on download.gimp.org presents a directory listing.
I could imagine Windows users rolling over to die at this point! But continuing
it then offers first a torrent
Download GIMP 2.8.14 <<---Link to torrent
If the torrent download doesn't work, you can also follow this link<<--link
to exe file.
It's no wonder users attempting to download gimp end up with infected programs
which are probably easier to access from a Google search.
So that's my rant, my suggestion to the keeper of the download page is to put
the Windows version at the top;
GIMP for Windows
