RawShooter to Lightroom…

The controversy over Adobe’s acquisition of Pixmantec subsided while I was on holiday. I got back to find an email from the Pixmantec founders explaining that as a buyer of RawShooter Premium, I’d be entitled to a copy of Lightroom when it became available. On top of that, they are looking at ways to migrate the RSP settings to Lightroom. These were certainly welcome bits of information, I just don’t understand why they didn’t contact Pixmantec users much sooner, instead of leaving us to stew.

Unfortunately, I’ve not read brilliant things about the Lightroom beta for Mac, and of course that beta was Mac-only… until yesterday, when I received an email from Adobe informing me that the Windows beta is now available.

Reader, I downloaded it.

No time to install it or look at it in detail yet. I already know that it is going to be very different to the RAW processor I’m used to. More when I’ve given it a test drive.

JEE becoming too complex?

There’s a good piece entitled On the Death of Java EE aka J2EE over at the blog of one of the analysts I follow (Cote from Redmonk). It is about a week old, but I only just caught it. If this is your space, you may find it interesting.
