The GIMP is a safe program.
I'd trust Broni's opinion alone on most things, personally.

What site advisor was this posted at and where is the DLoad location you were going to use ? ?
This all sounds like complete rubbish to me...

    Its a little slow-loading though.
    It needs a lot of computer power.

        That model comes in different flavors:
        Quote
        64-bit or 128-bit memory interface supporting 64MB, 128MB, or 256MB DDR1 memory configurations
        Which one is yours?
