Kill the outdated win/unix/osx pages and just point to the downloads page instead.

<h1>GIMP for Mac OS X</h1>
<p class="images"><img alt="GIMP" src="TiBookMacGIMP.jpg" /></p>
<h2>Getting and Installing GIMP</h2>
<p>There are various ways to obtain and install GIMP for your
Macintosh. In addition to the source code distribution here on
www.gimp.org, there are various alternative sources for packaged and
even commercially distributed CDs, which aim to make installation and
setup an easier task. These include:
</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://gimp.lisanet.de/">GIMP on OS X</a>
provides application bundles of of GIMP 2.6 for Mac OS X users.
</li>
<li><a href="http://www.macports.org/">MacPorts</a> provide an easy
way to install various open-source software products on Mac OS X.
They have GIMP 2.6 in the latest revisions.
</li>
</ul>
<h2>Requirements</h2>
<p>GIMP will only run on Mac OS X, not on version 9 or earlier of
the Macintosh operating system. There are a number of reasons why it
is unlikely that GIMP will ever run on older versions of Mac OS.
In addition to Mac OS X, the following is a list of what you will need
to run GIMP on your Macintosh:</p>
<ul>
<li>X Windowing Layer<br /> GIMP uses a separate windowing layer,
the X11 windowing protocol, on Mac OS X, which must be installed
first. The <a href="http://xquartz.macosforge.org">XQuartz
project</a> provides this functionality. There you can download the
most recent version of X11.app.
</li>
<li>Graphics libraries and toolkits<br />
Unlike most GNU/Linux distributions, Mac OS X does not come with the
open source libraries upon which GIMP is built. These are
typically installed along with GIMP, but can be installed
separately. If you want to compile GIMP from source, we suggest that
you use <a href="http://www.macports.org/">MacPorts</a> or
<a href="http://finkproject.org/">fink</a> to install the libraries
it depends on.
</li>
</ul>
<h2>Help and Documentation</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="wgo:docs">GIMP Documentation</a></li>
</ul>
<p>
Gimper.net is the home of
the <a href="http://gimper.net/viewforum.php?f=19">wilber-loves-apple
forum</a>, where you can find many useful information about GIMP on
Mac OS X.

<h1>GIMP for Unix</h1>
<h2>Getting and Installing GIMP</h2>
<p>There are various ways to obtain and install GIMP for UNIX
systems. In addition to the source code distribution here on
www.gimp.org, you can get binaries for various flavors of UNIX.</p>
<p>At the moment we know about the following binary packages for GIMP
2.4 or 2.6 on UNIX. These binaries are provided by GIMP users. We did
not test them; use at your own risk.
<ul>
<li>GNU/Linux

<p>If you cannot find a pre-compiled package of GIMP 2.6 for your
system, you can <a href="wgo:source">build and install GIMP from the
source code</a>. This is not that hard, so don't be afraid and give
it a try.</p>
<h2>Requirements</h2>
<p>GIMP runs on most Unix systems using X11 (the X Window System).
If your system can run a graphical web browser, chances are that it
can also run GIMP. It runs even on relatively old PCs (Pentium
200) or on old workstations (Sun Ultra1). The amount of memory can be an
important factor, especially if you intend to work on large images. A
minimum of 128 MB of RAM is recommended, but actually you should have
256 MB or more, and several GB does not hurt when you want to edit
<i>really</i> large images. In addition to the basic X11 libraries,
the following is a list of what you will need to run GIMP on your
system:</p>
<p>For the stable version (2.6):</p>
<ul>
<li>
<b>GLib 2.16.1</b> or better.
</li>
<li>
<b><a href="http:gtk">GTK+</a> 2.12.1</b> or better.
</li>
<li>
<b><a href="http:babl">babl</a> 0.0.22</b> or better.
</li>
<li>
<b><a href="http:gegl">GEGL</a> 0.0.18</b> or better.
</li>
<li>
<b>PangoFT2</b> 1.18.0 or better. PangoFT2 is a Pango backend that uses <b>FreeType2</b>.
</li>
<li>
<b>Fontconfig 2.2.0</b> or better.
</li>
</ul>
<p>It is recommended that you use packages provided by your
distribution whenever possible. If your distribution does not have
the required version of one of these packages, see <a
href="wgo:source">how to build GIMP from sources</a> for a list of
required source packages as well as where you can find them.</p>
<p>Note that if you compile and install GIMP from sources, you will
need the header files for the required libraries. On some GNU/Linux
or BSD distributions, these header files are usually included in a
separate package using the suffix <code>-devel</code>. So for
example, you will need the packages <code>gtk</code> and
<code>gtk-devel</code> if you want to build GIMP.</p>
<h2>Help and Documentation</h2>
<p>It is highly recommended that you install the help files (GIMP User
Manual) that are provided as a separate package, usually called
<code>gimp-help</code> if you install binary packages. The
documentation is also <a href="wgo:docs">available online</a>.</p>
<p>Other useful links can be found at the bottom of each page on this
site.</p>

<h1>GIMP for Microsoft Windows</h1>
<h2>Getting and Installing GIMP</h2>
<p>This site, www.gimp.org, only distributes the GIMP source code (the
building blocks). You can however download executable versions from
the following site:</p>
<ul>
<li>
<a href="http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html">Installer</a>
(provided by Jernej Simončič) - Choose this if you just want to
install GIMP. Note that the user manual is an extra package; make
sure that you get it as well. And have a look at the
<a href="http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/faq.html">FAQ</a> if you run
into any problems.
</li>
</ul>
<p>If you are a developer interested in creating plug-ins or working
on the GIMP source code, you may want to download some additional
packages (these are not needed for normal users):</p>
<ul>
<li>
<a href="ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/">Individual
.zip packages for GTK+, GLib and other libraries</a>,
- for developers and advanced users. If you follow these links,
you should know what you want, why you need it and how to use it.
</li>
</ul>
<h2>Requirements</h2>
<p>GIMP 2.8.x should run on Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Vista and 7.
Older GIMP versions (2.6.x, 2.4.x, 2.2.x, 2.0.x) could also work with
older versions of Microsoft Windows, but they are not supported
anymore. The amount of memory can be an important factor, especially
if you intend to work on large images. A minimum of 128 MB of RAM is
recommended, but the more RAM the better.</p>
<h2>Help and Documentation</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="wgo:docs">GIMP Documentation</a></li>
</ul>
<p>It is highly recommended that you install the help files (GIMP User
Manual) that are provided as a separate package (see above). The
documentation is also <a href="wgo:docs">available online</a>.</p>
