I am sold on the D-100 (check out my album at link below) all are shot with the D-100 I print at 19x13 all the time and my customers love them. The camera comes with some nice software also easy and fast to do post editting.

I skimmed through the post, but nowhere I saw mention of the ruggedness of DSLR's compared to p&s. DLRS's will take much more punishment than any p&s. Eventhough my D100 has a plastic external shell, it's a very dense, tough one which has resisted bangs against car doors, bangs against concrete walls, an ocasional light spray of water from an unsuspecting wet bush, and my lenses have taken abuse that would've cracked other p&s open, or at least put them out of commission (yet they keep on working flawlessly). Eventhough not a DSLR, my F100 is even more rugged than my D100.

As for post processing, if you get your exposure right at capture time, there should be minimal, if at all, processing time. Most of the time the only post processing I do on my images is resizing for 4x6 proof printing at a lab. I shoot jpg most of the time because shooting raw just adds an extra step to my workflow at work, and it wastes time (time=$$$). But when shooting for my own stuff, I do shoot raw because I don't mind the extra step, and time is on my side.

I'll start with shooting JPEG and move onto RAW when I feel more comfortable with it. I presume that Photoshop 6 can handle RAW files
Photoshop 6 can not handle raw files. Photoshop 7 can be used with Adobe Camera Raw plugin for D100. The new Photoshop CS can handle Nikon NEF raw without the need of a plugin.

LCD Framing: unlike a consumer (or "prosumer") camera like the Sony you're looking at, the LCD can't be used for framing on a DSLR.
What do you mean by this? I think I'm fuzzy on the meanhing of the word "framing".

Most Digital SLR models do not have a live view of the subject you are pointing the camera at in the LCD. Instead, you must use the optical viewfinder.

On the plus side, the Optical Viewfinders are usually larger and more accurate in an SLR, and they are true "through the lens" viewfinders, so you are seeing the same image being transmitted to the camera's sensor.

They renamed it. PhotoShop 8 is PhotoShop CS (stands for Creative Suite.)
