I'm a bit confused about this discussion; f-spot and gthumb do entirely
different things, and aren't comparable at all.

f-spot is an image management application. gthumb is an image viewer.
f-spot is very bad at just quickly looking over a directory of images
(you need to import images to be able to do anythng), and gthumb is no
good for organizing image collections. They are separate apps, and both
are needed.
