Seems like every day you meet people who don't realize practlcally all the full Lightroom develop module is in Camera Raw. The Adjustment Brush is in Camera Raw and so is the Gradient Mask.

The keyboard shortcuts are simpler, better and faster. With one or two images Bridge/ACR is just as good. But when processing 400 images right off a card, Lightroom blows away Bridge/ACR in efficiency.
