Same applies to Linux, get yourself rooted and see that it is
not a big issue.

Nope, just for the Windows users right ? Well, just for your
information, I use both, ie. Linux (RH 7.1) and Windows 98SE.
I'm rather happy with both, so I took it personally since I
qualify as a Windoze user.

How do you know that the security level of GPGShell is *low*,
have you done any testing, have you tried catching the input or
detecting the certain area of the memory where it keeps the
password just before passing it to gpg ?

Words in vain won't solve anything, do extensive testing, prove
that GPGShell is a risky piece of software then make accusation,
but not before, let's try to be fair.

Watching BUGTRAQ for quite a while now, and I did not see
GPGShell announced as having problems... this should mean
something yes?
