I personally love it, but don't use it for *everything*. It's just a tool in a series of tools that gets me to where I want to be. All quirks aside, I think it's a great program.
I'll add to the more-positive-than-negative chorus by echoing what Shawn and Nick have stated. When I use it for DDP assembly, I build the layout with 24bit+ files and use its dither on export. In that scope of usage, it's proven to be simple, trustworthy and reliable here.
Looking forward to seeing what Stefano comes up with in the update.
