It's support for Vista is not too hot. I tried it last night and it crashed each of the three times I tried to use it. I think this will be good if they iron out the problems.

I disagree. I use Vista and used this all weekend. No issues ever. If anything, its FASTER than the last version.

this is the photo viewer I've been using for years and believe me, I've tried many others (fast stone is one of them). None seems to have the quality in resizing images to fit your screen that ACDSee has, I found it easy to use and now it's gotten quicker. I like this pro 2 version.

Bloatware, nothing more. I've been using IrfanView for years now; I don't need a feature monster if I want to look through my image files.
Or what about imgv (NeoWin doesn't seem to know it at all)?

Well, if I want to do complex photo editing, I'd use GIMP or PSP XI, but ACDSee? They should call it ACDPhoto or sth.

Well ACDSEE is an organizer like Adobe photoablum. It is not a viewer per se. It is quicker than the versions before that too. While it does not have the seemless as adobe or corel choices.

Just because it's not your tiny little image viewer anymore doesn't mean it's bloatware. It's been a feature rich organizer, viewer and editor for years now.

Anyone that's used the new version knows it's quicker. If you want it to be really fast, turn off indexing, high quality thumbnails (doesn't make much of a difference), and any plugins and file formats you don't use. Then you still have the advanced functions AND browsing speed.

I'm agreeing with you. This version is super fast on my machine. Actually using it all over the weekend and I love it.

Back in the day this used to be THE image app for viewing and doing quick modifications to images. Now there are better solutions. Such a shame.
