I grew up with PhotoDesk (RISCOS), switched to Photoshop (on Mac & PC), professionally, and then GIMP (on PC and Linux) eventually came back to Macs, and went from iPhoto, to Aperture, to Lightroom, and having both Corel AfterShot Pro (used to be Bibble) & Phocus (sometimes freely distributed to non-Hasselblad owners - that's how I got my copy), plus various programs that came with my various cameras.

While I am glad that I have Phocus, and AfterShot Pro, I have used them very little, mostly testing them out. With a few hundred hours with Lightroom & GIMP under the belt I must say I think I'll stay with Aperture's ease of use.

Just wish Aperture took the chance NOW and upgraded the program, say by including better native noise handling features (I use Topaz add-ins, of course).

Nik Dfine is excellent for noise reduction.

Shooting with cameras and ISO's that barely generate it is better still...!
