Making Life Easier Photographer
basically, darktable It provides the user a virtual darkroom where you can reveal your digital negatives and edit them using different modules including, from the most basic (crop, remove blemishes, change exposure, etc.) to advanced (night vision simulation, among others.).
A serious alternative to LightZone and RawTherapee.
One of the striking aspects of this tool, which unfortunately is not yet available for Windows, is that the RAW image processing is done nondestructively, therefore changes applied will not be permanent until exportes the end result, can reverse the modifications anytime.
