Apple crippled DTrace: Sun DTrace cocreator Adam Leventhal -- Dampened delight that Apple ported Sun Microsystems' DTrace from Solaris to
Mac OS X. It's blocking DTrace from probing processes which exempt themselves. "This is antithetical to the notion of systemic tracing, antithetical to the goals of DTrace, and antithetical to the spirit of open source."
A gripe about Adobe Lightroom documentation -- I've introduced a few folks to Lightroom, and I agree the state of documentation and tutorials is chaotic, in part because Adobe revved the software so often. Better than no updates, though. I also sympathize with the paralysis of hierarchy, DNG, etc.
Harold Davis lurves his Nikon D300 -- "This is the first digital single lens reflex that I've used that approaches what a dSLR should be, and maybe even the Platonic ideal of a dSLR." Likes 14-bit raw, low noise.
David Pogue's SLR turned away at the door -- Pogue can't get his Nikon D80 into a motocross event. A harbinger of trouble. This goes hand in hand with all the issues about who owns broadcast rights--including text-messaging an update to your pal--of NBA games.
A developer of Windows on cruft in the Registry -- This is my single biggest beef about Microsoft Windows. Pathetic that insider advice is "don't try out new software." One reason I use virtual machines is to try out new software. What a sorry state of affairs.
Bibble 4.9 Pro raw conversion software review -- A review of Bibble's latest software. "If you're neither working with RAWs or processing lots of images, Bibble may not be (right), but for if you're looking for lots of speed and some of the sharpest results around, there's nothing better at this price."
