MPA1: Why would you want it, though?I tried both LR and Aperture and found the latter much more useful. Also, it's not free - you're paying for it in the camera price. I dislike the Adobe march to dominance and find it ethically questionable of Leica to do this.
Because that is your opinion. Not everyone shares it. Aperture for me is needlessly complex. Lightroom is intuitive, fast and serves as a perfect companion to Photoshop. No Aperture for me.
