Because XnViewMP uses qT it's fit for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, and it's GUI is much more dynamic. I love the abitility to move or (un)dock panels and take the full advantage of two monitors. I think XnViewMP will be the best free image/media viewers, especially for Linux systems. But as it's not open source let's hope it stays free forever :)
