Fat Camp

Well, the Adobe Lightroom beta has finally gone and done it: It's moved from svelte and sexy to requiring nearly as much go juice as Apple's Aperture.

This is both amusing and depressing at once, as Lightroom's initial redeeming quality—and the one everyone was trumpeting—was that it would run fairly well on older Macs and Macs with less RAM, where Aperture wouldn't work at all. Well, friends, Beta 4 has left those halcyon days behind. The minimum spec is now 768MB of RAM, and Beta 4 is the slowest version yet on my trusty 800MHz Power Mac G4. As in unusable.
