For the last few Years up until this spring, I've been usign Linux quite a bit for my work and play. I'll be back to a dual boot machine soon but I've just not had the time to set things up since I had to replace my computer. I'm a big fan of open source and absolutely hate the implications of the cloud based solutions for storage and software licensing. The cloud is conceptually interesting, but philosophically has so many pitfalls. But I'm drifting off topic here.
Now, back to our business, although I tried ufraw, rawtherapy and darktable and initially liked them, I still find LR too lead the pack by a fair margin. So I do most of my editing under windows. However, if both windows and the editing software go the cloud way, be assured that I will stay firmly rooted to the ground and happily back to Linux.
By the way, just before my former computer crashed, I was about to try digikam and showfoto on linux. I did not get to try it much but it appeared to be pretty feature rich. I had particularly been impressed with the distortion correction tool. Anybody tried it for real and has any comments to give?
