Even worse Lightroom JUST released its latest version, which supports the Fuji X10 RAW files. Come on, Apple! I'm being forced to pay for an update to LR when I'd far rather stick with Aperture.

Frank, I think that's been discussed elsewhere in Support, and the conclusion was that Aperture didn't convert Fuji's RAW files into DNGs. If I'm missing something here, I'd love to know.

Aren't you guy super tired of being apple slaves?
I hate to be doing what they decide for me.
Now I can't use aperture with this because they don't want to work on it.
Now they don't translate this because they don't want to.
Too much loyalty from me but they get the cash and I got what they want me to get.
I don't like lightroom, but why is Adobe always acting WAY faster than apple in customer support?

I must admit - I am getting more and more tired of being an apple slave.
They published the latest camera update for aperture:
Canon PowerShot S100
Nikon 1 J1
Nikon 1 V1
Nikon COOLPIX P7100
Olympus PEN E-PL1s
Olympus PEN E-PL3
Olympus PEN E-PM1
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ150
Sony Alpha NEX-5N
Sony Alpha SLT-A65
Sony Alpha SLT-A77
Still no RAW support for Fuji X10 - well done Apple!

Fuji and Apple are corporations. They make agreements. Every camera company uses their own RAW formats, and usually changes the RAW format for each camera. If Fuji wanted to use an open standard, they would.
I'm not saying that the deal couldn't be done if Apple wanted to -- but I am saying that after exhausting your influence with Apple (via "Aperture→Provide Aperture Feedback"), you are well advised to complain to Fuji as well.

It could very well be that Adobe gets pre-release camera's to characterize. Or that Apple's policy says to wait for full production release - we really don't know.
Do you expect your local Garage to be able to fix a Chevy Volt right now?

Frustration over the months of lag on Apple's part is quite legitimate. As noted Adobe released updates that accomodate the Fuji X10 quite awhile ago. Apple dwarfs Adobe in size and clout worldwide. I don't believe for a micro second that Adobe has an edge in RAW technology access. This is 100% a matter of Apple priorities, and frankly, makes Apple look bad. I personally made the decision several years ago to use Aperture instead of Lightroom. Now, to convert my Fuji RAW files, I've been penalized for that decision, and forced to buy (for $100) an alternate software package to make decent RAW to TIFF conversions. And I'm still waiting on Apple.
As much as I love Apple, this is SO typical. And a case for a rant being justified.
