In reading the last three parts of your review I am curious why you haven't responded to (confirmed or denied) the overwhelming evidence that aperture doesn't cut it (especially given the price).
I am specifically talking about the Ars review (http://arstechnica.com/reviews/apps/aperture.ars) discussing the many shortcomings and bugs and the discussion on the Apple Support Forum including an open letter from professional photographers (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=257791&tstart=0).
We don't need another airy aperture is great review like http://www.pdnonline.com/pdn/prodtech/reviews/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001435191 or http://www.computerworld.com/softwaretopics/os/macos/story/0,10801,105575,00.html?source=x253 when you are going to shell out $500.

    First of all, I don't feel the need to respond to any other reviewer. What I'm doing here is presenting my experiences with Aperture. I've been working with it diligently preparing for a Power Tools workshop at Macworld SF.

    To tell you the truth, the more I use Aperture, the better I like it. I particularly like the way it handles versioning. Data is never tossed, even when you crop. Yet, you only have one photo file, and everything is XML.

    My personal feeling is that many reviewers have rushed their verdicts in order to get out early reviews. This is why I'm blogging in stages rather than writing up a full review now. It takes time and real world experience to really learn apps such as Aperture.
