    Scott Bourne Blog - Why he's leaving Aperture for Lightroom (and maybe Windows too)

    I'm not saying I agree or disagree with Scott Bourne's reasoning in this blog entry - yet, but I think it can and will make for an interesting conversation. Let's keep it civil and it should be fun.

    Them is fight'n words from Scott:

    Adobe (and I really hate to say this) along with Windows PCs – have blown by Apple leaving nothing but a trail of dust. Apple seems more intent on keeping secrets, beating up on Google and making money for its shareholders than it does on making photographers happy and perhaps that’s the right business strategy
    As Scott pointed out, those that aren't professional photographers won't necessarily see the merging of the Aperture and iPhoto applications as a bad thing- in fact it may be more of a positive development for them.

    But then again I'm a Windows/PC user!

    I was an apple user and fan for years . . . my first computer was apple . . . put apple in my schools. Bought a G4 with upgrade capabilities so that I would not have to buy a new computer. Well, when the power supply went on the G4, and I was told that it would cost more than the computer was worth, I soured a little on Apple.

    Their products are so expensive and I get the feeling that they are more interested in innovation in a big way rather than building on a line of products (like the G4) So, I'm happy with my windows/pc system and with my adobe products.

    Re: Scott Bourne Blog - Why he's leaving Aperture for Lightroom (and maybe Windows to

    I think I may have said this in a dozen other threads, but I'm a huge fan of OS X. Love it. But even though I evaluated Aperture pretty thoroughly a while back, I've settled on the Adobe products. Since I use Macs and Windows, I can use the products in both environments. Because there is a large user community there are more add-ins, support and education opportunities for Adobe products too.

    I do think that Appple hardware is a bit more costly but there is no other manufacturer that provides the warranty and carry-in service that they do. . . all over the world. That has to add a certain percentage to the cost.

    My personal laptops are ThinkPads and Macbooks. When you configure similar hardware configurations - and include the maintenance programs - it is surprising how close the prices are to each other. Both are great quality systems IMHO.

    Ideally, give me a ThinkPad base with that awesome keyboard and trackpoint, add the Mac's Multi-Touch trackpad and OS X, and you would have a perfect notebook.

    I have used both Macs and PC and have also taken both types apart. When Macs were using Motorola chips, you could say that there was a difference. These days, Macs use Intel chips and all the other crap that is stuffed into them, are the same commodities that anyone else uses. Of course, there are different grades of hard drives and memory chips, bla bla bla... What makes a Mac stand out is one, it's operating system and two, the design/engineering. Inside a Mac, everyhting is so neat and tight - this is more noticeable in the MacPro's. When you open up a windows tower, it's not as appealing to look at. There was a company - Psystar- who put the Mac OS on "whiteboxes". Ran just like a Mac, but the "box" did not look like a Mac. Goes to show you what good engineering and mass marketing costs. In regards to Adobe, their products are second to none. But dealing with them on a corporate level is HELL!

    I was helping my nephew move from a ThinkPad 400 to 420 over the week-end and I was shocked at how clean the internals were on the newer system.

    Re: Scott Bourne Blog - Why he's leaving Aperture for Lightroom (and maybe Windows to

    I'm a Mac guy and once I went Mac I never went back

    That said I use Aperture as a base but jump over to Photoshop and utilize some plugins here and there as well.

    It's just like the camera ---- it's not the box we use to shoot or to process the image. It's how we see it differently than the next guy and translate it into "our own image and vision"

    Canon/Nikon/Mac/PC who cares in my personal opinion.

    When people look at my pictures they sure never ask what kind of computer I use that's for sure

    Re: Scott Bourne Blog - Why he's leaving Aperture for Lightroom (and maybe Windows to

    After much thought, internal debate and research, I switched to Apple. It took me several years to do it, but I don't regret it. I like my iPhone, iPad, Macbook Air and iPod. I think Apple products are a tad bit overpriced, but they do make fine products and they're great at setting trends. They inspire the market place.

    I currently use LR4 on my Macbook Air and it works fine. Maybe if I were a pro photog, i'd be a little upset, too. My biggest frustration with Apple, is their somewhat uncanny ability to slightly tick off or annoy their loyal market. They're a corporation and they do what allows them to grow. I don't think they (Apple) have done enough to make me go back to Windows or Android. They're still on the cutting edge of technology.

    Usually when I hear Mac fans espouse Apple products, they start off by saying ...iPod, iPad, iPhone....I Broke!!
