****!...Does this mean that Adobe is going the way of Microsoft?...buy out the competition and then bury the code in the backyard!
In particular I highlight these 2 statements...
"In preparation for this integration, the Pixmantec RawShooter Premium product is being discontinued, though the free RawShooter Essentials product will continue to be available until the Lightroom public beta program is completed."
The Lightroom beta program is MAC only for now and no one at Adobe is willing to say when the Windows program will open. So this doesn't make me any happier.
"Existing Pixmantec customers will continue to be supported by Adobe and will be provided with an upgrade path to the Adobe digital imaging product family."
I'll be very interested in seeing just how much of an Upgrade Path this is going to be and how much this is going to cost me.
I'm still struggling with the program and how it does things but what it does do is very different from the Adobe product.
So I'm NOT amused to read this.
