This not entirely correct. Or, to be more precise, this is entirely incorrect.
Unstable version of GIMP has a plugin that reads/export from/to a
number of file formats supported in GEGL. One of them is NEF, which is
supposed to be loaded via libraw (not dcraw), but doesn't appear to be
loaded properly for some reason.
The stable version of GIMP doesn't have this plugin and, therefore,
doesn't have this issue. Therefore, the solution is to stick to the
stable version until this is resolved one way or another.
Windows vs. Linux are irrelevant.
Photoshop is irrelevant (ACR is a plugin, just like UFRaw).
