What are your opinions of iLife '09?

We can read a lot of reviews from experts but I rather get you guys' opinion. Do you think iLife '09 is a good app to upgrade to?

    To me it's worth it for iPhoto alone. In fact iPhoto '09 will be the reason I'm finally upgrading my CoreDuo MacBook to Leopard.

    For me in order of influence.

    iMovie 09- GREAT upgrade. I got further along with better results the first time out versus me using iMovie HD. The realtime features make my DC 1.66Ghz feel much faster because there's hardly a slow down.

    iPhoto - clean UI and faces doesn't work half bad but picture quality is important. I've tested the Facebook link and it's fine as well.

    Garageband - I LOVE this. The new UI is great and i've only dabbled with loops. I'm going to test out the training soon and eventually I'll have a guitar and USB keyboard.

    iWeb- FTP...nuff said.

    iDVD- I'll use it eventually.

    for me it's a worthy purchase.

    I only use iPhoto, so the upgrade is a bit expensive. I bought it but I have to say that I am not impressed so far. I believe that using keywords and folders/albums is a much better way to organize photos than faces or places...Face recognition doesn't work well and the places database is not accurate.

    I am using iPhoto 09 exactly the way I was using iPhoto 08...
