Poll: Do You Use F-Spot?

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Last week at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, plans were hatched for what was to be included in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. header

GIMPs removal from the default applications line-up in Lucid was down to many of its features over-lapping with those of F-Spot. It was felt that the GIMP was, ultimately, a professional application and “Mr Casual User” probably never touched it. Bang on the money, really.

However many of you seemed miffed that F-Spot had been left unscathed despite the fact, and I’m generalising here, most of you said you install something different to manage/edit your photos.

Now, decisions on application inclusion are based on a number of factors and the number one most important thing for the Ubuntu team is including usable, user-friendly applications that grandma and grandpa would use.

Does F-Spot really fit this bill? Are there better alternatives? Do you use it? Do you like using it?
