The software on the disc is chosen for being user-friendly,
well-integrated into the Gnome desktop, and of a reasonable usefulness
to most people. F-Spot fulfils those criteria.

As a photographic imaging professional, you're probably the wrong person
to be using F-Spot. I think anyone who uses the word "sector" when
talking about F-Spot is missing the point of the software.

It's for home users!
