Okay you get what you pay for but I wasn't fully aware of how much I'd miss some of the things i've listed, but I was just getting used to CS4. If you've never used CS4/5 then you may not want or need some of its capabilities. If you've exhausted PE9 then I doubt it'll take long for you to do the same with PE10. For me though I'm saving frantically for an upgrade.
I did look at Lightroom's latest version but correct me if I'm wrong but it can't run on XP.
In theory, it
run on XP...... in practice, most computers that still run XP are just too under-powered by the processor and can't use the extra RAM that Win7 (and Vista) can use. (I think XP just can't use much more than 3Gb). So while LR3 can 'operate' on XP - you can't say it 'runs'...... crawls, perhaps, but not run!
