No, but to me, this is more important than a Netscape port. There are
no image manipulation packages for the UDB other than ImageMagick, with
doesn't come close to the capabilities of GIMP. GIMP is supposedly as
powerful or moreso than Photoshop for NT.

On the GIMP homepage, the developer states that he'd do the port himself
if he had an AXP to work on. Anyone want to volunteer an account?

Check out:

By the way, the GIMP requires Motif, but it could be statically linked.
