Here is another commercial product that incorporates Dave Coffin's dcraw without providing any credit.
Even the article fails to mention the total dependence of LightZone on dcraw for its RAW file capability.
The real defect, however, is that LightZone is not compatible with pure 64-bit systems. All of its libraries
and executables are 32-bit. The article quotes the COO's quest for being "robust across many Linux
configurations," but if LightZone can't produce a pure 64-bit version then their product is destined to be
ignored by the serious and up-to-date user. It certainly will be ignored by me.
