The end of 2020 is nigh, let’s take a look at the current statistics of all applications in the Windows Store published with the KDE e.V. account.
Last 30 days statistics
Here are the number of acquisitions for the last 30 days (roughly equal to the number of installations, not mere downloads) for our applications:

Kile - A user-friendly TeX/LaTeX editor - 710 acquisitions
Elisa - Modern Music Player - 400 acquisitions
KStars - Astronomy Software - 228 acquisitions

A nice stream of new users for our software on the Windows platform.

If you want to help to bring more stuff KDE develops on Windows, we have some meta Phabricator task were you can show up and tell for which parts you want to do work on.
A guide how to submit stuff later can be found on our blog.
Thanks to all the people that help out with submissions & updates & fixes!
If you encounter issues on Windows and are a developer that wants to help out, all KDE projects really appreciate patches for Windows related issues.
Just contact the developer team of the corresponding application and help us to make the experience better on any operating system.
;=) More to come, I hope…
Let’s see how this progresses in the next years, I think 2020 was a good year for our applications on Windows.
I hope we will see more applications making their way to the store in the future.
And let’s see if more people step up to help with fixing remaining issues for Windows, too!
