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.
