I've been using XnView Classic for years. I mistakenly assumed that "Classic" meant older, and therefore it would be smaller and would run quicker (like older versions of ACDSee did).
However, I recently decided to try XnView MP, just out of curiosity, and boy am I glad I did! I was absolutely blown away with how much faster it is! At least 10 or 20 times faster. The difference in speed is simply astonishing!
But now I'm wondering why anyone uses Classic? Sure, there may be one or two features that MP doesn't offer, but from what I understand there's little that MP can't do. So given that MP is so much faster and works on all platforms - why don't they just discontinue Classic?
If nothing else I think they should rename the two versions because I think the names are confusing and I'm still not really sure why there are two versions to be honest or why anyone prefers to use Classic.
