no its legit, there is a windows version now.
I am using Beta 3 right now as we speak. I really like it so far, much much better than Beta 1. It is still pretty slow though, but has so much potential that i am going to reformat my workflow to involve this as my new management system. i really like the program. and i find it more intuitive and easier to manage than aperture.

I will have to check out version 3 to see how it now compares to Aperture, nice to see the Windows version...guess the final version will be out with the next CS3.
