GIMP1.2.5(Install version)
Screeenshot

Startup : Fast, without reading big-size brushes.(19 seconds)
Many big brushes terminated this version.
Plug-in : Useful "Logconv"
Photoshop Plug-in : Enabled
mathmap : Enabled
G'MIC : Disabled
script-fu : "Sky Animation" can make.
Output formats : bmp, binkenlights(Grayscale), c-source(can't read), cel(Only index and aplha channel image, image is broken), fits(when this format open and choose NONE, 3 images opened. If you choose NAXIS.., original image opened), fli(Changed grayscale or index, can't read), gbr(Require Alpha channel), gih(Require Alpha channel), gif(Changed grayscale or index), gzip, header(can't read), hrz(size 256x240), html(can't read), ico(gicon, Grayscale), im1(sunras), jpeg, pat(Require NO Alpha channel), pcs, pix, png, pnm, ps(postscript, can't read), psd, sgi, shp(Grayscale), tga, tiff, xbm(Changed Index), xcf, xwd, xpm
Others : Automatic made ".xvpics" folder every time when save files.
This version often terminated..if script-fu contents so many errors, this version often terminated.
In My PC(Windows Vista), only this version can create and save GIMPressionist presets.
Reading script-fu is very fast, but GIMP often terminated.
When GIMP1.2 treats large size image and use undo, this may take a while.
Light color gradient is low level than later 2.0.
GIMP1.2.5
GIMP2.4.7


GIMP2.0.5(Install version)
Screeenshot

Reading script-fu is very fast.

Screeenshot

Startup : Reading font takes time on Portable.
I changed the folder of "GIMPPortable" "App\gtk" contents to this(the contents of gtk, GIMP2.2 install version).
(If you'll change this, save backup original gtk contents)(35 seconds)
Plug-in : Additional plug-ins don't process on Portable, so I changed "App\gimp\bin" "libgimp-2.0-0.dll" to this. And additional plug-ins processed.

Photoshop Plug-in : Enabled(Added plug-in)
mathmap : Enabled
G'MIC : Enabled
script-fu : Disable "<Image>/Script-Fu/Stencil Ops/". Change "<Image>/Script-Fu/StencilOps".

Others : Like version 2.6, changed menu position makes difficult to use. And so many bugs in 2.8. A part of brushes size don't reflect.

Every version if GIMP sets to read many brushes or many patterns, GIMP takes time.
