I have PGP Desktop 8.1 installed (PGP Corp) I wonder if I can use GPG with same keyring as PGP does?

Prior to GPG 2.7, use this guide, it allows PGP by adding the extension modules IDEA & RSA to GPG.

In more recent GPG versions, RSA is supported so you can use the same keyring as PGP.

This guide is about PGP 2.6 from 1999. GPG has supported RSA keys for quite a while already. – grawity Mar 11 '11 at 18:57
