it will be possible with turing in 4~5 years, when the copyright on .gif encoding expires Laughing HoltSoft is just too cheap to buy a licence to use .gif files:?

Actually it's a smart idea for the creators, they are able to collect royalties from people buying the license. It's like saying "Let's make Windows Open Source!!!", we all know it won't happen

Step 1.
~~~~~
Take an animated GIF and break it into 1 bmp of jpeg per frame. If you don't have a program to do this already download IrfanView from download.com (it is free, not just free to try)

Step 2.
~~~~~
Load all of the frames into an array of integers (when you want to draw them later they are already in RAM, and thus draw much quicker)

Step 3.
~~~~~
Draw frames in order and cycle it.

The example here is very simple and would need changes to incorperate it into a real program.
