The question is not To shoot raw or jpeg. The question is raw+jpeg or raw only.

The question is, "what am I supposed to do with all these jpegs?".

With the evolution of technology (and regarding to computer business and built-in-obsolescence paradigm), nothing could be less certain that someone can read your .RAW in the future...

I am quite confident that my Nikon RAW files will be readable for the next 20 years. Beyond then, it won't be my problem.

Try to read a Jaz data cartridge from the 90" on a today's computer, just to confirm the idea...

That's a storage format issue. It would be just as hard to read JPG's from a Jaz drive as it would be to read RAW files. Not relevant.

Anyway, shooting .JPEG increase your skills on exposing your shot better, so why you want to shoot .RAW only, when you can shoot raw+jpeg at the same time?

I expose my shots just fine. Out-of-camera JPG's are totally redundant for me.

If you choose to shoot JPG's, go right ahead. I have no issue with your photographic methods but I wonder about your specious justifications for them.
