the one i'm testing now keeps crashing when i process a folder of 800 images. might need to go back to C1..
Tip: Speed up LR on XP/Vista
On both XP and Vista, Lightrooms database and preview cache is located in the "My Picture" (or "Pictures" on Vista) folder by default. If you have installed "Windows Desktop Search" on XP or you are using Vista the search indexer will try to index this folder, and can slow down LR considerably.
When you generate previews in Lightroom, both Windows and LR will fight for the disk (this happens even when the Vista version of Search has the "Background" I/O priority).
Solution: Exclude the lightroom folder from the Search index (no need to turn off Desktop Search).
On a sidenote, if you have installed the Nikon NEF Codec for Vista and open a folder with NEF files, Vista will generate previews for all NEFs in the backgroud. If you then start to import this folder to LR you get the disk thrashing again...

hmm not sure if anyone posted this before.
Is Lightroom compatible with Windows Vista?
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.0 will install and run on Windows Vista; however, Adobe cannot guarantee the quality of the software experience until Adobe fully certifies Photoshop Lightroom for use on Windows Vista...

Q. Does Adobe Photoshop Lightroom® run on Windows Vista?
A. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.0 will install and run on Windows Vista. However,
Lightroom was released before Windows Vista became publicly available and has not been
fully tested on the final shipping version of this new operating system. Compatibility testing
of Lightroom is now underway. Adobe will evaluate whether to release an update to
Lightroom depending on whether any significant issues emerge during this testing. One
known issue is that the Lightroom CD and DVD burning tools do not currently function on
Windows Vista. Technical Support will document any additional known issues in the
Adobe knowledgebase, which customers can access at www.adobe.com/go/support. Enter the

One thing nice about LR, is that it can add folders from my external HDD, so now I only keep my recent photos on my computer, and the rest on my HDD as I get pretty decent working speeds when exporting. Anyway, I'm using LR on Vista Business, and I've not encountered any problems with Canon RAW (.CR2) files, and no "glitchs" of any sort.
LR should work with all current Nikon Models except NEF from the D40x. The D40x is not yet supported.
Support Nikon Models:

Pardon me asking but does LR replace Album?
