    The software companies are the boss. Companies like Adobe and

    You are welcome to your opinion. However, the Adobe offerings are a
    useful tool for those of us who have chosen to go down that road (I
    can't speak for the MS products as I don't use them), and there are at
    least 8 of the regulars in these photo news groups (Win & OSX users)
    who have made that choice. Also a few of us also own iPads.

    ....and the $9.99/month subscription for the Photography program when
    compared with the software cost plus regular upgrades, is a bargain,
    especially for those of us who were ready to jump off the adobe upgrade
    treadmill.

    Or learn to live with open source or learn to write code and roll your
    own.

    Most people are too busy earning money to be bothered rolling their own.
    Some aren't.

    good luck on writing your own version of lightroom, nevermind two
    versions, one mobile and one desktop, that sync.

    the ones who do bother writing their own rarely do as good of a job as
    the commercial companies with a big budget and big development team.

    Thank you Mr Duck for the info.

    If I ever get to upgrade my ancient Compaq Presario XP machine, I am a prime
    candidate for that. Definately a good point of $9.95/mo being much cheaper
    than the constant upgrade cycle of the old days.

    Get a Mac.

    (ps: current rumour is a "low cost iMac" is around the corner).

    It is unfortunate that the latest Adobe CC software isn't supported on
    the ancient OSes, that is true for XP and the mature versions of OSX.
    PS CC and LR5 require an OS update.

    Windows minimum requirements:
    Intel Premium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 (2 GHz or faster)
    MS Windows 7 + SP1. Win 8, or Win 8.1
    Min 1 GB RAM.

    Mac OS:
    Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support.
    Mac OS X v10.7, v10.8, v10.9
    Min 1 GB RAM

    Now that MS has dropped XP support, perhaps an update might be in your future.

    ....or you could join those of us in the Mac World where you would have
    the latest OS and still be able to run your Win XP stuff. Along with
    OSX 10.9 I run Win XP Pro SP3 under VMWare Fusion on this Mac. There
    are some bargains in 2-3 year old used Macs which will do all you need.

    With the iPhone I am inclined to agree with you, but an iPad combined
    with Photoshop Touch and/or the new Lightroom Mobile is a quite capable
    image editing tool when away from your desktop, but you wouldn't know
    that as you are particularly averse to both Apple and Adobe products.

    I am not suggesting/recommending this to other than the current
    faithful. I also see little use for LR Mobile other than moving an LR5
    collection to the iPad to use as a portfolio.

    To those that this is not applicable, just ignore this post and carry
    on with whatever it is you use.
