Software for Raw

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, if not, please move it where it must be.
My question is: Which is the best software for raw editing?

Thank you for your answers.

PhotoShop CS4 has the most advanced features I know of and is the standard of the industry.

Thanks, Cris.

And free software...?

Scarab Darkroom 1.0 Beta

This one is highly rated!!

Scarab Darkroom is a new digital camera raw file converter that supports most DSLR-s from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Sony. It's easy to use, lean, and super fast. It is still under development and currently in Beta version.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm starting right now with raw files... finally i've got a dslr cam and must learn almost all, but trying and happy.

It's all a matter of ambition and budget of course. I haven't tried the free software alternatives but I'm quite happy with Photoshop Elements. For that money you get alot. RAW file handling is ok. You can do basic manipulation in 16bit/color resolution (color, light, sharpness etc) before entering the regular editor.
