Interesting software choices

According to the tour page...
DigiKam was replaced with Shotwell in Mandriva 2011. Shotwell is a new standard for the photo management in free software. Being one of such products like iPhoto it gives to user the most powerful experience.
Seems like a fairly dubious statement to me, but it's also odd that they've gone for a Vala-based application aimed at GNOME when the distribution ships with KDE 4.x technologies by default.

The statement might be dubious (but then it's a marketing page :-)), and the choice odd, but shotwell is the best photo manager since sliced bread. :) It is nothing short of amazing. I haven't seen digikam for a long time, and when I used it, it was great too though.
