he likes Picassa, what I don't (I nearly hate this one)

many of his criticisms are justified (at least until 8.0 
version), but digikam works quite well. The ability of 
making some edits is mandatory for me, digital cams gives us 
tons of images mostly good, but most of then need already a 
little fix digikam do neatly and on the spot

my main concern about digikam are the unreliability of tag 
editing (I have lost too many times my comments and gave up 
on tagging).

it lacks also a real save/restore to disk (cd/dvd) utility. 
I mean a way to keep the database and the images in sync 
between several installs (save on 10.0, restore on 10.2, 
with may be different folders). May be it would be better to 
have the data in the same folder than images (may be only on 
backups). I also lose data this way.

of course the better way should be to have data stored IN 
the image, but this seems to be unlikely
