I have to say that I really don't understand how LR got so popular. As far as I'm concerned the UI is simply awful, and seems to have no real flow to it. Adjustments were OK, but on my Mac Mini, not any faster than with Aperture.

The biggest thing with LR, IMHO, is the ease of applying effects with brushes and then adjusting them afterwards.  It is similar to masking and layers in PS, but much faster.  For example you can quickly lighten part of the exposure while leaving the rest where it is.  You can sharpen just the eyes.  Watch some tutorials.
