In previous discussions, has Windows been taken into account? From what I could find, even Microsoft software uses stub-program if a specific version of a program should be launched. So it seems safe to assume that there is no good mechanism to make the destinction work in windows.
An advantage of a likely non-conflicting file-extension like ".zimwiki" would be easy cross-platform mime-type handling. Seeing how the mime-type issue seems to make a lot of work, isn't it actually a good point to re-discuss the extension issue? regards, Klaus 2012/12/16 Jaap Karssenberg <jaap.karssenb...@gmail.com> > On Sat, Dec 15, 2012 at 10:41 PM, Svenn Are Bjerkem > <svenn.bjer...@googlemail.com> wrote: > > Isn't it more wise to use a different extension than .txt for the zim > > markup files?
