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.
I have tried darktable and I didn't like it's management. The only drawback is that is is quite slow, which is probably because my computer is quite slow.

It's like driving a manual transmission car, full control, but you need to know how to drive it.The processing profiles can apply parameters «selectively», and can be manually edited using a plain text editor. Very useful when you have lots of photos to batch edit.Interaction performance when switching photos could be improved with better caching techniques.
A worthy free alternative to Lightroom.
I, as an amateur photographer, use rawtherapee to process photos in conjunction with hugin and digikam. It have wide choice demosaicing algorithms, even "Pixel Shift" for Pentax cameras, what was useful for me. Interface clean and comprehensible, but this application not for beginners in photoprocessing.
sadly it does not run on OS X Lion (10.7) at the moment, eagerly awaiting updates.
