OK I love aperture, i have been using it from 1.0 and never regretted it, till now. I wanted to edit some photos i took today and i launched aperture, my library is on a external HD, a USB 2.0 thing, and i have a vault on a firewire drive in a safe place. well it said my library had a database inconsistency or something of that nature, so i tried to let it recover the files and it kept getting stuck, so i get the firewire drive out of my safe and try to restore from the vault and the same thing happens, so long story short i am screwed and i wanted to rant about it and share my pain with the internet. I already sent a angry e-mail to apple. bottom line. I do not think the aperture library option is stable enough for professional use, do you agree if not why?
