I tried to find out what was new in E.M. 2, to decide if I want to toss yet another $100 at this.  The Microsoft support/sales site has a nice link for "why upgrade", and when I click on that link, all I get is an invitation to download Microsoft Silverlight.  No, Mr Ballmer, I do NOT want that on my machine.

Is anyone else bothered by having to download crap to your machine just to read about new features in a product that they're trying to sell you?

Any reason why I shouldn't take my $100 and buy Aperture or Lightroom instead?

The main reason not to throw $100 at Aperture or Lightroom is because they are totally different programs. Neither Lightroom nor Aperature are good long term media management programs. They are for developing and handling the processing of files, not the ultimate cataloguing of files. Maybe lightroom will get there one day - but it is at least one more version away from doing that. I'm still using iView and I'm looking forward to a day when folks on here are loudly proclaiming that EM has "arrived" and then I'll be willing to throw $100 at them.

Till then I've regretted almost every microsoft purchase I've ever made and I am not anxious to send any bucks their way.
