I plan to try out those that offer a demo option however as I am new to the field I'd like to get the opinions of those that have already tried out the major ones (Photoshop, Aperture, Lightroom, GIMP etc.).
I am familiar with basic photographic principles, am relatively tech savvy and am using a macbook (3 GB memory dedicated to Mac OS/1 GB to virtual PC). I've been using iPhoto for photos generated using my P&S and like the cataloging simplicity and integration with other Apple products. iPhoto recognizes the NEF files from my new dslr, allows basic editing (really slow) and saves edits as either jpegs (default) or tiffs (user selectable).
Beyond these fundamental abilities what do other softwares offer that you use on a regular basis. Do you use one program for edits and another for cataloging? Are other programs quicker or is that really a limitation of my computer? What attributes do you find most useful?

I think it really shot itself to the top of the heap, although the lack of a built in optical view finder might be a bit painful in typical bright mountain conditions, even with the add on viewfinder it is probably easier to carry that most SLRs in the mountains.
