Lightroom: Adobe's Aperture Killer?

In a stunning move on the opening day of Macworld, Adobe unveiled their new RAW Workflow application called Lightroom. While paralleling many of Aperture's features, Adobe claims that their workflow app will support more RAW camera formats than it's competitor; emphasizing DNG support which is now a native file format in Hasselblad's H2D DSLR and Leica's upcoming Digital-Modul-R back. Lightroom apparently has less strenuous requirements than Aperture - observers of the demo noted the new arrival was running smoothly on a Powerbook G4. A beta of the application (Macintosh only) is available for download. Adobe will be providing PC support, but only under the new Windows Vista Operating System.
