Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

"Even then, there is quality Linux desktop software which one simply cannot get for Windows:
http://www.digikam.org/about/overview
http://www.calligra.org/
http://www.kde.org/applications/education/cantor/


Digikam: http://sourceforge.net/projects/digikam/files/digikam/2.2.0/
Calligra: http://www.calligra.org/news/calligra-packages-for-windows-released...
Cantor: "If you have windows, then you can use The KDE on Windows Project, please note that there is already a Cantor.exe ported to windows, so is not necesary build the application. Otherwise, you can build and install kdelibs from sources."

So, uhh, your point...?
"

So please try to start Digikam 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0RC on Windows 7 64bit and report back your results, I'm sure we're all gonna have fun.
Just to say that developers providing executables or installers for Windows does not mean that applications just a click away on Linux work equally well on Windows, or work at all.
