D-lighting, is it only worth having on if using NX software ?? (D700)

Hello helpful people !

I'm currently getting great results from my D700 but could always do with a little more help !

I use Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Software plug-ins.

I recently noticed via the Camera's menu system that I have d-lighting set to off. But I seem to recollect that d-lighting only really comes into play when used in conjunction with Nikon's software (NX, NX2 ??).

Is that correct ?? I have no intentions of buying NX software, so would your good advice to be not to bother switching on d-lighting in that case ??

Or should I have it turned on ??

I shoot a variety of stuff, but these days more and more street photography / portraits.

Thanks.
