no its legit, there is a windows version now.
I am using Beta 3 right now as we speak. I really like it so far, much much better than Beta 1. It is still pretty slow though, but has so much potential that i am going to reformat my workflow to involve this as my new management system. i really like the program. and i find it more intuitive and easier to manage than aperture.

I will have to check out version 3 to see how it now compares to Aperture, nice to see the Windows version...guess the final version will be out with the next CS3.

and by the time CS3 comes out it will be universal! and when that happens i will get my Rev B blacbook that has no moos or whines of any kind, runs cold as ice and has no price premium over the white macbook! yay!
