Hmm, but if everything which needs to be done to your images can
be done on linux, then why switch back to Windows?

Well, I think the suggested approach with symlinks does not correspond
to the way digikam works.
The central concept for organization are tags and
virtual folders (including the date view and searches).
Therefore, anything which is not possible
should be improved within this framework
(for example grouping of images is planned for the future
and many other things, which will be possible after the
transition to KDE4 and the new database scheme).

Of course, code contributions to any of your wishes
are very welcome!

Best, Arnd
