Memo to near-monopoly franchises charging for every upgrade: multiple cores came out years ago—serve your users by making use of them and stop making lame excuses and digging for dollars with every minor release that’s a 0.1, not a 1.0. Snake oil outperforms.
Hall of Fame
BibblePro should be your choice of RAW converter if you want speed. It’s like having a 10GHz Mac Pro (compared to Lightroom).
Photozoom Pro is just about perfect in scalability. Nice job.
Hall of Shame
Double the memory, double the cores, go 32% slower. Blame it on Apple?
