In my experience, and just verified by looking what eog does nowadays
(==not much), eog and gthumb cannot be even compared. Gthumb is what I
call an image viewer application, eog is a dumb "open this one image for
me" application. If you ask me, eog as an image viewer application is 2
megabytes of wasted diskspace. Ok since it's used by nautilus then
that's a justification for it's existence but can we please throw it out
of the menu and replace it with gthumb as the default "Image Viewer"
application?
