A Google search for a Windows download finds nothing. Whereabouts is it available?

I did a quick review of the Darktable website and it appears that a Windows version is not available.  I must have confused it with RawTherapee which does have Windows versions. (I've played with SO MANY software titles in the last 2 months or so!)

One of the problems with open source is that the developers often create the raw code and maybe the first rough Linux distro, and then leave it up to others to compile and package it for other operating systems. and if no one takes up the challenge, then it doesn't get done.

I can't blame them actually, it is really difficult to produce BAD software, and good software is several times more difficult.  The developers often just don't have the time for anything more if they aren't backed up by a big organization.

you can find the RT download page at:
