Ubuntu Replaces F-Spot With Shotwell 361

climenole writes "Finally! The much discussed F-Spot vs. Shotwell battle is over. The new default image organizer app for Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 is going to be Shotwell. This is a much-needed change; F-Spot was simply not enough. Most of the times when I tried F-Spot, it just keeps crashing on me. Shotwell on the other hand feels a lot more solid and is better integrated with the GNOME desktop. Shotwell is also completely devoid of Mono."

Nintendo never bought the rights to the Mega-man games, the developers paid Nintendo for distribution rights for their platform because without it they wouldn't be allowed access due to the 'lock-out' chip that was built into the NES. The reason the games can come out on other systems is because Capcom still own's the rights to them. However, Nintendo can still sell the games because of the distribution rights they acquired back in the 80's.
