Subject: [Leica] Lightroom or CS4 Bridge?

I've used Photoshop since it was v0.9, and got Lightroom right after 
it graduated from rumour status. Both work, but LR works better as a 
general photo processing tool. The main reason is that, as Alastair 
has remarked, it works non-destructively. Photoshop doesn't do that 
intrinsically, and to do non-destructive editing with Photoshop you 
have to use a more complex and cumbersome workflow.

So Lightroom will, in general, output high quality images than Photoshop.

As others who have both programs have noted, about 95% of my work 
gets done in Lightroom and 5% in Photoshop, but that last 5% gets 
done after Lightroom has done as much as it can. That way the highest 
quality is maintained.

Do you organize your files on your hard drive or use Bridge before 
opening them in Photoshop?
