Subject: [Leica] GIMP question

Does anyone here use GIMP in a Windows 7 environment? I just got a little 
netbook, having concluded that it will be forever before Apple decides to 
come out with one, also because I wanted a Win 7 machine so I learn to use 
that OS and will be able to provide the customary IT support to my wife who 
has it on her new laptop :-)

Anyway, I was thinking of using the opportunity to try GIMP on that little 
thing, just in case I get the urge to process an image when travelling. Is 
it easy to install? I have looked on the web site a bit and it talks about 
scary things such as needing to install additional components (all free, 
sure, but still hassle) and whatnot. 

Is it really just something one can download, install and run without 
getting into heavy-duty under-the-hood stuff?
