I installed this Gimp, but when I open up Activity Monitor, it's running as a PPC app and not an Intel app.
I have a MacBook Pro 2.0GHz with 2GB of RAM.
Was hoping to have a good image manipulation program while I wait for Photoshop to become Universal.
So in essence if I wanted to use this on a work computer portably as the description suggests I still have to install something (X11) on the works computer?
o in essence its no more portable than going to macupdate at work and downloading Gimp?
