      darktable vs Capture One opinions
      Almost everyone thinks darktable is a great alternative to Capture One.
      Darktable is the only RAW editor I use. I have tried Rawtherapee but I think D.T. is better. Besides, there is a long learning curve with both and I am more familiar with D.T.
