Running GIMP under Cygwin (not Win32!)??
Thu Mar 6 21:03:00 GMT 2003
1.2.1 compiles more or less out of the box and runs fine w/ most of
the plugins. However, it is very very slow. My 200MHz PPro Linux box
w/256MB memory and a remote display runs much snappier than the 2GHz
P4 W2k box w/1GMB Memory running CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.3.12 with local XFree.
