Re: [Gimp-developer] [PATCH] gimp-web: Update the Windows download link to gimp-2.8.0 [try 2]

Microsoft's Genuine Advantage was installed with SP3, but not SP2. There are millions of SP2 installs out there in the wild. If GIMP should basically run on SP2, I don't see a reason not to offer an (unsupported) installer for it; it's just a case of, as Jernej wrote, 'bumping the minimum requirement' down again.

Best regards,

bother with SP2, you might as well not bother with XP at all.

What means "offer suport" here ? Is to be expected that GIMP 2.8 will
not work at all on SP2, or is it just about offering help by someone in
case of install troubles or something ?

(Other than that, I believe that the "SP3" is just a centralized
collection of XP fixes, most of them being already present in a SP2
with all live updates accepted and installed. As for "monitoring&
reporting" folly, in case this exists, was this present only on XP SP3
and never since then on newer Windows versions ?
