Please. GThumb as a serious competitor to G-Spot? You've got to be joking.
Gwenview & DigiKam are both KDE apps, so they are not valid answers for a
GNOME distro. Besides that, Gwenview isn't a photo album manager--it's the
equivalent of Eye of GNOME, just a viewer.
And I already mentioned the troubles with replacing Tomboy with any of those.
Zim is suitable for hackers, not for people like my brother. KNotes & BasKet
are both KDE apps, unsuitable for GNOME distros. And Gnote is most certainly
not better than Tomboy. It's an incomplete emulation of the original that
breaks the formats used by Tomboy. And do you know how Hub responded to my
bug report about him breaking the format's compatibility? He essentially said
he was trying to lock users in. He doesn't want users to have the choice to
go back to Tomboy. The Tomboy developer's response was to change Tomboy to
accept Hub's broken notes for the sake of keeping users' choice in-tact. Now,
which falls more into the category of freedom-loving? The developer who uses
a patented technology which is no more a threat than MP3 to write software
that doesn't bind the user, or the developer who uses unpatented technology to
bind the user to him?
