I have been experimenting with these two and while I'm not proficient in either I have taken CC off my computer for a month. Had a complete breakdown with CC today. I think I will like the work flow on C1 better but it all remains to be seen. I'm using the free express version at the moment but I think I will click with it better. Here's to going Cold Turkey. First time in 10 years there has been no Adobe photo products at my disposal. The tough love way to learn lol.
