I agree with Mr. Remnant: F-Spot is beautiful and simple like, for
example, Microsoft Vista. But I don't think a pretty face should
distract us from considering Mr. Quigley's points: F-Spot is inefficent
and may violate Microsoft's patents.

Ubuntu users deserve beautiful things and they don't deserve to have
them taken away because we ignored potential patent violations.
