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.

I just regret not making it clearer that I was referring to my own experience in the beginning, and not making absolute statements. Anyway, for the average user more than for me, a piece of software works or does not. There's no grey area between those two cases. This disqualifies the experience of some open source, originally Linux-centric applications on Windows and OS X for me. It's not the same. That's it. No need for statements to be taken as insults.

EDIT: Moreover, I find digiKam to be an amazing piece of software.
