Personally, I would vote for a Aperture section, "if" Apple allowed a 30 day trial.
I'm not going purchase the product untested. I'm well served by Bridge, PS2,and Nik CaptureNX. I tend to look at other programs through trials, and have acquired PS2, Capture NX, PK Sharpener, Noise Ninja, and other software thru this evauation method.
I'm currently warming up to LightRoom, waiting for repair tools (cloning, BandAid, etc)
Apple are you listening!!!!
