Uhm. Maybe because you get a consistent interface in Win* as well as in
Linux? Or maybe you don't need to rely on crappy, cheap
shipped-with-camera software? Or maybe gphoto will evolve while the
shipped-with-camera software will not?
I can imagine several reasons for a gphoto port to Win*. It's always
nice to have a choice!
Just my 2 EUR-Cents... Tino, not owning a camera at all. ;-)
