Back to the topic a little from the Mac vs PC battle ;)

For the easiest photo editing there are specialized tools:
For pro shooting Lightroom is there.
And of course you also have some tools which comes with your camera. Like Digital Photo Professional on Canon etc.

For image editing not only for photos:
GIMP is free.
If you still have budget to use i also recommend Photoshop CS4.

good point.

getting the best from my images requires me to use premium RAW shooter. (unavailable due to adobe buying them out i think) it's one of the best, even now for RAW conversion making light work of what's usually a tedious process.

for image enhancing/editing, PS is my only port of call.

i'm only guessing here, but i reckon the "true" die hard photographers you had their arms nearly pulled from their bodies to switch to digital....would only use RAW converstion...you get what was snapped at the time.
