Irfanview and recently started using Windows Live Image Gallery, which is quite nice as well. Anyone use Picasa?

I've chosen to go with xnview for now, it took a while to get it set up but is working almost as I want.

Thanks all for so many replies.

Faststone is really good in my opinion. Maybe the fastest & most usable of the bunch.

Maybe I'm just spoiled with my 3D software, but I just wish there was also something that was sleek and modern looking, not like it's from Windows 95. That said, i'm giving XNView a try, and I remember irfanview now that someone has mentioned it, I used to like that as well. But honestly Windows is pretty good for the most part, just lack of PSD and HDR thumbnail support is all that I'm missing.

The biggest problem with the windows viewer is that you can't change the color of the background, so you're stuck with that terrible light gray.

DJV viewer under Windows 7 64-bit for RAM previewing, high-dynamic images, and so on.

On Linux, which is my primary OS for work, I use gThumb (Super fast!) for 8-bit images, Blender for 16 - 32-bit (Just for viewing, I have to use Krita for editing), and Shotwell for viewing .CR2 files.

I'm hoping to get DJV viewer working under Ubuntu 12.10 (Or whatever version it is) though, as I like that application a lot!

I used Picasa for years before switching to Lightroom. It's a really fast viewer, easy to make albums and upload them if you're into google+ or youtube. I can't really say how the editing is, I never really used that portion.

the cool thing about OS X's QuickLook plug-in is that it has a command line tool (qlmanage) that can be scripted with Automator. I made a plug-in to send it Maya scene previews:

I'm giving Faststone a try, but it seems like it doesn't have a tab system like xnview(tabs for opened images).. or maybe I just haven't figured it out yet?

I only use photoshop and sometimes Image Ready

I used to use Lviewpro the most for basic image viewing -reference-comparisons

I know its ancient but I liked that i could open many images in one session and have them stacked and accessible like photoshop does--click on an image and it comes to the forefront.
Can someone recommend another program that does the same kind of stacking of multiple images in an open window like that?

There's an RPM and a deb version of djv viewer. Doesn't that work for Ubuntu? If anything you should be able to install it through alien.

There are whole folders with PSD files that I batch changed into Tifs just because of that.
