Linux can do that, don't worry.  GEM uses a plugin system for image 
loaders/savers - probably GEM is distributed with them split out into 
multiple packages. Try:

$ aptitude search gem-plugin-

which lists many available to my Debian system, not all of which I have 
installed.  I think gem-plugin-magick should be enough to load PNG and 
other common formats.
