Oh, is therea windows PC pre-installed with a Professional Image editor?
That would have been really great! Well that does depend on who is providing
a pre-installed computer also. On an average basis its 'okay' to remove GIMP
by default. Although, they did speak of a new section in Ubuntu Software
Center for 'staff picks', basically to enlighten the new users to the
popular softwares not shipped by default.
