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.

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.


What are you saying? That KDE- and DigiKam-developers are incompetent and therefore can't get DigiKam working properly? I'd say that's quite an insult. I have no idea why you'd think it'd be fun. Personally I trust their word when they say it works.

Also, it works perfectly well under 64-bit Windows 7, with absolutely NO issues:
