This is the worst app I have ever used…

…and I’ve used plenty of terrible apps.

I’m a very experienced user of The GIMP for Windows, and found XGimp totally unworkable and by far the slowest app I’ve ever used (though the advertisements work fine – they are the only thing that does).

XGimp is not associated with the folks at GIMP who seem to know nothing about it. They surmise it is running remotely from someone’s computer (which seems very slow, very far away and to have very little bandwidth).

This is a big security risk in itself and, when Googling "how to open a file in XGimp" (yes, really), I ran into others asking the same question (so it’s not just me being a moron) plus discussion about a big security hole that has been discovered in the app.

It looks like an abandoned sophomore project.

I give it one star because giving zero stars or -5 stars is not an option.

Don’t install it. If you have, uninstall it. You need a desktop for this one.
