Please ignore Carol's ramblings. She is talking mainly bullshit here.
Albeit the fact that she has a gimp.org email address she is not
talking on the behalf of the GIMP developers. At least when she's in
this particular mood.
Please don't get a wrong impression from Carol's reply. We are
definitely interested to hear about your in your problems. Even though
most GIMP developers are using some flavour of UNIX, we are still
willing to make GIMP work well on the Win32 platform.
