The ultimate reason not to shoot both

I've been shooting RAW+JPEG and now after seeing the ability of the Adobe RAW converter, I'm considering whether to just shoot RAW. What do you guys think?

Others can debate the pros and cons of workflow, storage etc., but the ultimate reason why you would migrate away from shooting both is because correct exposure for each format is rarely the same.  Once you understand this (and the associated potential IQ advantages of properly exposing for raw), then the jpeg image usually becomes just an overexposed waste of memory.
