I just wanted to let all of you know that the Lightroom 3 beta program is available to the public. Which means anyone can download the program and start putting it to the test. You do not need to own a previous version of Lightroom. You can download the beta and use it until the product expires on April 30, 2010.

Two things though. You need to register with Adobe and it's only available in English.

But I think it's still a great way to test and work with an otherwise expensive tool. And I heard from a lot of professionals using the beta 3 that it's working just fine.

Here's a link for more information and you'll also find a link to download the file.

I don't see where the difference is other than in the price tag but you can get AppCleaner for free and it will do exactly the same thing as AppZapper.
