Coming from Bridge I have to say that, on first impressions, I don't like the Library feature. Being able to dump something in a folder on my HD and view it via the Bridge window is simple and straightforward. The cynic in me says that it was devised to make LR different from Bridge/ACR. (just joking!). But, a quick Google shows that I'm not alone in disliking this. That said, I suppose one can get used to anything.
I'd like to know though how people like me, coming from 3 or 4 years of Bridge/ACR, make the transition?
Question: If I want to import a folder of images that already exists on my HD into LR, does it make complete copy of this folder? What I'm getting at is, will I have duplication and therefore some serious house work to do in order not to have my disk space devoured by this Library system?
