[CoLoCo] Kubuntu?

I guess I'll keep running KDE apps in Gnome for now. Sounds like people
think thats OK.

The main problem I have with Rhythmbox is that if you already have a track
on your iPod (even if you added it through Rhythmbox the first time) it
doesn't recognize it and adds a duplicate.

For F-spot, I have over 60 gigs of photos, and I need to be able to view
them separated by their original folders. Picasa is great on Windows but
doesn't integrate tightly enough with the OS on Linux.

If anyone has any other ideas or program suggestions let me know.
