Re: Hey, while you're at it also go after Adobe

I can't remember the last time I had Lightroom or Photoshop crash. In
fact, since I switched to a Mac several years ago, I don't think I've
ever had either of these apps crash on me. You're mileage may vary.

I'm not a huge adobe fan, but I've had no problems with CS4 and very few in the time I used CS3. The latest versions of LR also seem stable and fast.

As for the UI, Lightroom and Aperture are setting the UI standards
that other apps can only aspire to. I do agree that NX NEF
conversions are among the best, but I rank Capture One as equally
good, and not nearly as annoying (tho it's far from perfect).

IME, the best ever UI was Paint Shop Pro v8 and 9. Starting with v8, you could fully customize the UI, the menus and toolbars, to anything you wanted and several iterations to cover different needs. I don't see how any UI could be better than that.

I agree with your statement about C1. I recently bought C1 and am very pleased with the output, especially the colors. For me, it's much easier to use and much faster than NX. The UI isn't anything really great, but it's not all that bad either.
