I mainly work with Mac and Linux; however, I do, from time to time,
pop together things for Windows.

belongs) GIMP consistently produces PNG files that maintain their 
transparency regardless of which platform one is punting them to in
Runtime Revolution stacks/standalones.

GIMP for Windows:

Windows-oriented friends of mine tell me that is also
a good thing:
