Adobe launched .DNG in 2004 as a unifying RAW format. Except for the release of Adobe DNG Camera Raw (4.4.1 now) – which I have installed but don't ever really use – I haven't heard very much about DNG since. Every camera manufacturer is still shipping its own RAW flavor, afaik. Was Adobe's ".DNG initiative" factually a non-starter? And – more practically – can I de-install Adobe DNG Camera Raw and trash it (and recover some HD real estate)? Or is there still a future for it? In my workflow CS3 handles all RAW files with a Camera Raw.plugin. Which seems to be handling all RAW flavors I have sofar thrown at it fine. So do I still need the Adobe DNG Camera Raw stand alone app? Did I ever?
