Work well on Ubuntu

about RawTherapee and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Ubuntu Sep 2016

Because of this software, I can completely give up windows and go to my favourite Ubuntu. And I do not need to pay for Lightroom!

I'm used to work in Darktable, but it did not work very well on my newly bought laptop. I was forced to look for options and tried RawTherapee out. Right now I'm really impressed and I might never switch back to Darktable.

sadly it does not run on OS X Lion (10.7) at the moment, eagerly awaiting updates.
