    Here's one from 2009:

    It's an adobe blog, but the figures come from an independent polling organization, with a sample group of over a thousand professional photographers.



    While I suspect the overall numbers are somewhat closer, Adobe really does dominate among professionals. With the apple pricing and most recent shift in Aperture's priorities, I think they've basically given up the pro segment and are shooting for the "prosumer" one...

    P.S. Dear Mr Jobs,



    when are you going to build a data centre in Australia, to spread the load?



    Aperture in US = $79.99

    Aperture in Australia = $99.99

    $US1 = $A1.004



    WTF?????

    I delayed updating my 15" spring '10 MBP for a couple of days after reading another user report a kernel panic after updating.



    In my case the screen when to solid blue with the spinning gear immediately after the update finished installing. When nothing changed after a few minutes I forced a restart by holding down the power button + the control and command butttong, after which the screen went black and the MBP restarted normally

    He has a point, in NZ Aperture is NZ$104.99, which is roughly US/AU$80, and Aussie GST is only 10%. Now I am taking the assumption that even though the NZ Store is run from Aussie that it contains NZ GST.

    I have a Mac Pro that is running pretty sluggishly, but no instabilities so far. I might try to go back a couple versions, I had some problems with 10.6.5 I was hoping .6 would fix.

    I updated a week ago. No crashes yet, using Office 2008, 2011, VMware Fusion, iLife apps, Firefox, Safari, just pretty low-key stuff. So far, stable. Just thought I'd add my experience here. As always, I'd recommend folks test their RAM, repair permissions, Disk Utility Repair, etc etc.
