Adobe Bridge, ACR, iView Pro (expression media now), CS2. Trying to utilize ImageIngester for filing as it gets better and better.

There's something other than Photoshop CS3?

Lightroom for RAW processing and general workflow
Paint.NET for more detailed pixel-manipulation
IrfanView for general photo browsing and viewing

for RAW conversion, PPL is still my favorite. The more I use it the more I like it. It's very capable and produces the colours I like the best.

CS3 is the next only if I need extra adjustment - not much, something like USM

I voted other, I use Picasa2 for the original look see at my RAW when I first enter the files from the camera to the computer. When I process the RAW I want to keep, I use Photoshop CS3.

I work with linux (Fedora 8) and I use Bibble Pro. I really love this software since it is really efficient and not very difficult to understand.

I have tried RawTherapee, RawStudio and UFraw (all of them are free); they are very interesting but I prefer largely Bibble.

For HDR, I want to try Qtpfsgui that seems a pretty good software.

and like most of the people I use Gimp for minor corretions

Pentax Photo Lab for RAW conversion. I've been using (now-defunct?)'s Ember for dust-spotting, but I caved in and got Elements tonight - haven't even loaded it. The "Spot Healing Brush" convinced me :-) It appears it may have other useful features. We'll see.

Edit: I've now converted to Elements, which seems nice so far. It is pretty handy, though I miss the exif list available with PPL.
Edit #2: Egads. I just finished processing about 1,000 PEFs shot with my K100D via Elements - no problem. Now, my new (as of today) K20D PEFs make Elements cry "wrong file type" and will not open. I tried changing the color space from sRGB and AdobeRGB and back, changed the file size (down to 6M) etc, and nothing helps. Shooting in DNG or converting to DNG via Photo Browser - those files open fine in Elements. I checked a PEF from the K100D just now and it opens fine.
