Lightroom plus the Nik Software plug in suite seems to be pretty hard to beat right now, can't think of anything as comprehensive as that for processing raw/ tiff files, seems unbeatable.

PROS: Still feels like 'the' photo cataloger/editor app. Regular updates, consistent new features, consistent patch updates. Strong selective editing tools. Fairly fast in cataloging features.
CONS: Non-mac like experience. Certain selective editing tools are slow. No mac full screen option. Feels a little bloated with (what I consider) extra modules: 'Map' & 'Web.'
VERDICT: I recently reinstalled the latest Aperture 3.4.5 & Capture One 7.1.3 to test against Lightroom as I do every year or so. Aperture is simply too dated and CaptureOne is very good but still very cumbersome and very buggy. If you're new to this type of application you may want to check out both first, but ultimately Lightroom seems to be where most of the consumers land. Your best 'safe' choice is Lightroom, for now.

Spot on review, and I also use the Map feature 95% of the time. And of course, it's NOT part of this creative cloud thingy.

You can hide the Map and Web modules by right-clicking the in the bar and unchecking them.

There are four different full screen mode commands/shortcuts, check out Window/Screen Mode.

If you meant there is no OS X native full screen mode, while true, that is not necessarily a bad thing. Many users feel OS X native full screen is broken until Mavericks comes out and does it right.

In Lightroom 4.4 there is a bug with the crop tool. The aspect ratio isn't locked when you change orientation of the tool with the mouse, so it's not possible to crop an image keeping a chosen aspect ratio.

LR5 also came out much later then CS6. Keep mind Adobe is going to have to support LR5 on three versions of MacOS, 10.7, 10.8, and next week with the announcement of 10.9. Most people don't support more then three version of MacOS.

I read 'Most people don't support more then three version of MacOS.' as developer don't.

I have some 800 applications on my Mac. 99% of them is still working, in their latest incarnation, on 10.6.8 (by more than a few regarded as the most solid and useful OS so far)

I support aprox 50 Macs in several companies (by supporting IT dep), not one has chosen to go to Lion. Most of the buyers is holding of new investment because they do not want to be forced in to ML. They buy good used ones instead.

I expect 10.6.8 to become a sort of XP, to bad for Apple that this hurt their sale of new machines. 10.6.8 is still hovering around a 30% user-base _even_ though new machine will not runt it.

I really have a hard time in explaining to clients why the need to upgrade from 10.6.8, what is _really_ the gain in productivity? Not the eye-candy and such. Why spend money for no gain? If it works, and works well - why fix it?

Interestingly that even if a division of Adobe choose to abandon 10.6.8 Apple did a huge update some day ago... I think that speaks for itself. I figure Apple isn't like most people.

When Maverick's comes out SL will be three versions behind and I think there will be a drop off in support in SL at that point. I am currently on Leopard which is three versions back and I can tell you that most people do not still support Leopard.

"what is _really_ the gain in productivity?"
I would say built in tagging (on Mavericks). Having a modern way to navigate files is really important and should really enhance productivity.

Runtime

Well, I am at 10.6.8 too, and I, on the contrary find that most (β‰ˆ95%) people (developers ) DO support it (me).

I find nothing in Maverick that is important to any of our clients workflow (where the focus is not games or social media nor the cloud) Not even tagging (I expect that my clients is above average in organizing themselves ;-)

Not really related, but similar to the ADOBE reasoning, is that some tools is only available in ML and not in 10.6.8 (and then making LR5 work fine with everything after Vista) is the Apple decision to shut out (for our users irrelevant, indeed) 10.6.8 from iCloud, but then make it available to Windows. It is not a technical decision it’s a market-one (that is offensive (from a 10.6.8 users perspective)).

You can register your dissatisfaction by switching to Apple Aperture. Oh wait...Aperture dumped 10.6.8 many, many months ago. That is the state of the industry. We were lucky that a non-Apple developer kept Snow Leopard support going this long.

As far as Mavericks goes, the productivity increase is not in the eye candy features but in the under-the-hood improvements like battery life extension and compressed RAM.

People are crazy to still be stuck on Snow Leopard if they have a machine that can run ML well. This last month I just upgraded my Leopard machine to ML and have found it to be a way better OS. Here's hoping more developers drop Snow Leopard support in their up coming updates so they can force more people to a newer OS.

BTW the comparison with between SL and XP is nuts. XP is popular since MS released several lousy updates after that release (Vista, Windows8.) ML is a very solid update to SL.
