Can you tell me what kind of software should I use for organizing 
photos? Here are my requirements:

- should be able to handle many photos (right now we are using Picasa on 
Ubuntu but for 100 000+ photos it is very slow and unstable)
- should be able to save comments/annotations for the photos (I do not 
like Picasa because it uses a special database for that. I would like to 
have txt files saved in the same directory where the photos are, or 
something similar.)
- should have a full text search feature (search for photos with given 
- should run on Windows and FreeBSD. (Actually, I would like to burn 
self-starting DVDs, so a Python or Perl based GUI would be great)

Well, if there is a web server based solution, that is fine with me, I 
need to burn photos to DVDs and be able to use them.

Can you recommend something from the ports tree? Or should I write my 
own program?
