Yes I would; and the premise of your question makes no sense.  Why would Google spend money to acquire Nik Software and then ignore it or allow it to die?

Google is in competition with Facebook for users (via Google+) and they are trying to offer a product comparable to Instagram on their Google+ platform...that's where the Nik acquisition makes sense and you can expect to see an Instagram-like product there in the near future.  Although there hasn't been updates released since last September, Nik is continuing to develop their software products.

I want to get either HDR Efx Pro 2 or Photomatix, and my opinion is about the same for each. But I almost feel that Nik is disqualified because I doubt Google's claim of long-term commitment.

What do you think?
