Differences between Gimp Windows and Gimp Linux

Hello list

Since I started to write my gimp-course for Gimp 2.2, I was wondering, why the screenshot-funktion looks so different in Linux from Windows. It has never changed. Now that I update the course again, I wonder if there is a reason to it.

I mean the possibility on Gimp for Linux to make a screenshot from a selection. You can't do that on Window.

By the way, thanks for the great work you done on the new gimp.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Right now, I think the 2 different dialogs are created by 2 entirely different plugins - one for Windows and one for Linux. For years, it's been the intention that the Linux one were to be ported to Windows, but nobody's gotten around to it yet, because other things took precedence (and not many of the devs use windows).

In other words, it's on the todo list to make them the same, just near the very bottom of the list.
