Free RAW Converter: UFRaw

I just made my case the other day for why I shoot exclusively with JPEG using the EP-1, but that doesn't mean I am disregarding the RAW format altogether.  RAW is a highly respected and widely used format amongst many digital darkroom aficionados.

UFRaw has been around a long time.  It's an open source project based on the dcraw conversion utility.  The converter itself is fairly straight forward in use and provides a plethora of controls, though some important items such as sharpening are in fact missing.  UFRaw is also a cross-platform application in that it can be used on Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.
