Anyone with some experience with Lightroom would hardly call it bloatware.

My intention was not to start either an Adobe or Fuji flame fest. This seems to me a similar contest to the Adobe Flash /Apple QuickTime battle, and we all have suffered through that.

Full disclaimer: I make my living with the Adobe Creative Suite products. Have since Photoshop and Illustrator, and the Mac, first came out. Not about to give them up. That said, I know neither is perfect, and I have always been willing to accommodate that.

I have about 80,000 images managed by Lightroom, on several drives, in the cloud, and on my server. Not about to give that up either. And I should not have to. That is my point.

Look, it does not matter who is at fault, Adobe or Fuji. The Fuji x files have to be wholly, totally, and completely processable by the mainstream, or they are niche products, like the Fuji S series (at least you could process these.)

And the mainstream, like it or not, is Adobe. Plain and simple.

Many  of you may recall, in the euphoria of the  X Pro1's introduction, all of the posts here by folks giving up their 5Dii, etc. for the XP1: image quality, light weight, etc. Of course many of those folks, like me, were not aware of the smearing issue. Few of them making a living in photography are doing it without Lightroom/Photoshop. None that I know, anyway.

The X Pro 1 is a great camera. I love mine. I just want to be able to work with it like any other camera...
