On strike during the Oneiric cycle due to ungratefulness of Ubuntu.

gThumb is my favourite - not bulky, easy to manage in the folder without database complication - 2.11 seems to be sweety.. so my vote goes to Thumbs Up (gThumb)
We have come up by other's support, so let us support a few at least!

I have never found that F-spot was much use to me. Gthumb, gnome-alsamixer and gparted are the first three things added to any new install on my box.
That said, I do not care what they use as default. Gimp was great to have on the CD, particularly if you were buying the CDs because of dialup connections (it is a fairly good sized download).
Without Gimp as the foundation for photo editing, these other things are rather silly to argue about.
I have my photos, by subject in separate directories. I have no trouble keeping them straight and I have years and years worth.
I guess it just doesn't matter to me what they decide, it will just change what I need to install on any new OS.
I have never removed F-spot but I haven't used it since Hardy.

@ Ranch Hand you should get MC too , its very handy when the boot aborts to console or you can only get to a terminal .
if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough
Very good article about F-spot and its weaknesses. http://blog.wirelizard.ca/2009/11/25/f-splat/
+1 for gThumb from me.
Think about it: a filesystem is a hierarchical database which can be extended to something resembling a network database using links. It is not feasible to extend it to something resembling a relational database as that would lead to an explosion of links and still lack the tools to do arbitrary queries. For many tasks a relational database is better than a hierarchical or network database. Photo management is one of these tasks.
Maybe gThumb could be extended to support tagging in a sane way. It would offer the flexibility and functionality of f-spot combined with the speed, small footprint and filesystem-based functionality of gThumb.
I could be called g-spot
