Comments and Reviews
Recent user activities on gThumb
- reviewed gThumbCrap. Despite its solid age the program still has bugs of infant level. Example: I change the ordering of pictures in a folder. The thumbnails in the corresponding panel are reordered, but when I start clicking through pictures, it shows them in the old order! That is, the current thumbnail is one and the actual picture shown in the picture panel is another! The fact that developers still haven't fixed it can only mean they are imbeciles.
