    A good Mac owner should be proud that non apple software isn't compatable.

    And honest mistake, I completely missed the point of the thread that it doesn't run. I took it for granted it would have. My silly.

    I don't have Snow Leopard, so its a non-issue right now. I've also heard that 2.20 runs under Snow Leopard. Dunno if its true or not...

    I recommend CaptureNX2, it does (IMO) the best job of handling RAW files from my cameras. Version 2.2.0 works perfectly under Snow Leopard, I'm running it right now. The SL-compatible update is SUPPOSED to be out this month, but who knows if they'll be able to stick to that deadline.

    NX has the most accurate colours for RAW files. Lightroom even with its camera profile support and applying same colour setting as used in camera doesn't quite match the rendering NX can do. ACR and Lightroom are similar with how they render RAW images.

    When it comes to RAW rendering, it's not a platform specific aspect and the RAW converters mostly exist cross-platform (one exception being Aperture which is Mac only). Not seen how Aperture renders colours of RAW files though to make a comparison with it.

    The answer is simple... do not upgrade to Snow Leopard until Nikon comes out with a compatible version of Capture NX- stay with OSX Leopard.. This was my answer to shooting and editing RAW on my iMac because I use my computer solely for photography and music, and because Snow Leopard really doesn't offer that much of an upgrade when you really think about it.

    LR2 or 3

    I'm also a Mac user stranded by Nikon in Snow Leopard...

    If you want ACR, you don't have to get CS or Photoshop - the same algorithms are used by LightRoom2 and 3. Although I wasn't happy with LR right away, I've come to like it. With available plug-ins, I have a lot of export options and control. It's RAW conversions are fine, though CaptureNX2 is generally regarded as a bit superior.

    Nikon ViewNX/Transfer NX also do the same RAW conversions, minus the editing power. But without SL support, screw Nikon.

    Anyway, I suggest you give LR a more thorough spin - you might change your mind.

    Having to install Leopard on a new computer that shipped with Snow Leopard would feel like installing XP on a machine that shipped with Vista. I would be really pissed if I were using Capture NX.
