There is one *BIG* difference between gthumb and f-spot

gthumb can be used for casual browsing/manipulation of any directory
containing image files

f-spot can not - in insists in importing/pre-processing ever picture
directory before making it available. So it's more a centralised picture
management app

Till f-spot gets a "casual browsing mode" it's not a real gthumb replacement
