Pixmantec's Rawshooter is a great piece of software and cost only 70 bucks. I couldn't find anything better for working with pictures in RAW format. But now it turned out that some other people liked it a lot, too. Adobe systems (the makers of the famous Photoshop software) simply bought the whole company. As a result, Rawshooter will not be developed anymore and its technology will be integrated in a new Adobe product called Adobe Lightroom. Let's see where this leads to. As a Pixmantec customer, I'll get Lightroom 1.0 for free, but from then on, it might become way more expensive to stay up to date. I don't like the idea.
