Default Photo Organizing Software

Well since I upgraded to Windows 7, I need some new Photo Organizing software. Kind of a bummer, the old one I had from photoshop elements (really old version) had grown on my. Yet still it worked pretty OK. So I loaded Windows Live photo Organizer, but it is not "floating my boat". CS4 has something called Bridge, but I really don't like it so far. So what did I like about the old adobe organizer? Plug a card in my card reader, or into a USB, it started a really easier downloader, and it allowed erasing the card after it was done. It kept the images (by default) in "import batches", probably my very favorist thing about it. But I could TAG and categorize them also, which is kept in a sidebar for easy access. But i could return to the "import batch" mode at any time. I could adjust via a slider how large, and how many (by their size) it displayed at one time on the main screen. So is there one out there like that, hopefully more up to date today? I searched here but didn't find anything. Once again, thanks all.

Lightroom is PERFECT for this kind of things - I use it since I shot my first pics with my DSLR (about 3 months ago) and I love it

Download the Lightroom 3 beta and decide if you like it or not
