    I never got beyond the download and then reading the instructions on how to compile GIMP for yourself. I couldn't be bothered - it was easier, quicker and far more productive to pay for Photoshop elements than try piecing together my own freebie version.

    Oh I know you can get a pre-compiled version now but that first experience put me off for ever.

    Open Office is way cool, there's a huge debate at work to push MS Office out (we all have to cut costs right?) and go to Open Office instead. I have both on my work PC but I tend to use Open Office.

    Funny, I've never had to compile GIMP - I was able to download and run the program.

    And Microsoft Paint is still available for download freely.



    It's already been explained why. Photoshop is expensive because it's the RR Phantom of the industry. You don't really get much better.
    I dont give a damn bout any industry, I pay for windows, I get softwares wether its free or not ..

    Then, Paint is already in your windows (you'd already paid for it), so they wont care if you download it because you'd already have their OS (windows)
