I used to be exclusively MS paint! I was about to download gimp, because it is free, when I found out this computer here at work had photoshop 7 on it. Probably going to still get gimp for home computer though.
I have GIMPortable and the Inkscape on my little 2GB thumbdrive so as to avoid the administrative lockup on my work computer, and I can take it all home with me at night, too!
LAST POST, I tell you, LAST POST!
