Jarno and Bruno,

please focus your energy in creating the application comparison. A few
good points to include would be:

1. What features do we expect an image editor to have, at least?
2. What do you think is the learning curve for the different editors?
3. How light are the applications?
4. How mature are they in development?

Looking at the history of application comparisons and proposals in
Xubuntu, it seems that there is a high possibility to get change in the
defaults, as long as you are willing to work for it, and the
rationalizing is sufficient.


P.S. (Just a personal preference:) Let's try to bottom-post (not
top-post) in the future, as it makes following the threads (especially
authors of mails) easier in the long run. Thanks!
