I disagree with the contention that ACDSee ever treated the Mac community "with contempt," but even if that were true, the team working on this new version are not the same people -- most of us (all of us that I've met) have never even RUN the old Mac version of ACDSee, that's how far we are removed from it.

Right now it seems heavily overhyped and this "evangelism" comes across as ACDSys setting themselves up as some conquering hero coming to rescue us from the banality of our existing options.
Really -- seriously -- I have no idea where you get that from. You'll not hear me say anything disparaging about the other programs for the Mac -- indeed, in another thread I just yesterday recommended PSE 8 to someone, and I personally still use and love iPhoto.

I'm doing nothing more here (and in the other places I visit) than trying to raise awareness of a new alternative. Choice is good, isn't it?
