Lichens and Linux

This handsome lichen was really catching the light on a sumac branch yesterday.

My Linux machine gave up on Friday (all indications point to a fried CPU, so I'm afraid it's "terminal"), and I'm having to use iPhoto to browse my digital photos. I had thought it was simply my unwillingness to learn something new, but after this experience, I am quite sure the Linux KDE Desktop "DigiKam" photo management software is far superior to the program that ships with Mac OS X. I understand that a port of Digikam to Mac is in the works, and when (if) that happens, I'll be putting it on any Macs I use regularly.
