Adobe Lightroom

Just caught wind of this one and downloaded the beta (sorry Windows users, only available for Macs). Looks like it's Adobe's answer to Aperture and provides a great way for pro/hobbyist photographers to manage their digital photographs and process RAW images.

I haven't used Aperture so I can't compare the 2. But it could certainly be a nice replacement to iPhoto which I use to manage all of my photos (editing still done in Photoshop).

Despite the fact that it is only a beta release it feels very solid. Then again I've only used it for about 15 minutes so far. Although I do miss the tight integration with Apple's other iLife apps.

If anyone else has had the chance to "kick the tires" chime on in with your experiences.

I'm unlikely to ever use Aperture since I don't have a Mac, but Luminous Landscape gave it a scathing-but-positive review recently. They seemed to like Lightroom better.
No longer here.
