I want to try shooting RAW with my R1. What conversion program do you find works the best with this camera?

In a commercial product, you may want to take Bibble for a spin (you can download a trial to see if you like it).

A good free converter is Raw Therapee:

There are many others. Photoshop using Adobe's Camera Raw plugin is a popular choice, as is Adobe Lightroom.

I run both Linux and Windows, and the two products I mentioned in my first post (Bibble, Raw Therapee) have native versions for both operating systems. So, that's a big plus from my perspective. I prefer Bibble's algorithms for raw files from my Sony A700, mostly for the way it handles noise from this particular camera (i.e., the look of the grain pattern). Sometimes one converter is better than another for a specific image, too (I've been known to run the same image through more than one converter if I'm going to print it, before deciding on the one that handled a specific shot better).
