swankFoto: Aperture not included, seriously?What value does this review have without Lightroom's biggest competitor? Aperture wasn't even mentioned in the intro.
The fact that Aperture was not included because you apparently are awaiting an update has some plausibility. However, "cross platform" as the reason for not including Aperture won't cut it, especially since your test machine was a Mac! Indeed, you also left out AfterShot Pro (née Bibble Pro) from Corel, which is one of the most cross-platform commercial applications out there, as it runs on Mac/Windows/ AND Linux! I am not only interested in hearing about the market leaders. I also want to hear about what is viable, period.
