Parent article: A quick grumpy review of Shotwell
I did search for my own name to find my user ID on lwn, and lo and behold, a new answer. I'll look at it, looks rather nice.
Would be interesting to see how fast it is. DigiKam is still, one of the fastest image browsers I've come across.
DigiKam loads incrementally better versions of the image, and I believe it decodes the next picture when you have extra time as well. Maybe even it uses a free core on your CPU to do that, I don't know, but I do know that it's miles faster than most other software when looking quickly through huge pictures.
Although I'm no fan of the copy on the website: It's noisy!! Very much so! ;-)
