I prefer to think of them as complimentary programs, not separate solutions, although both are perfectly capable of being so on their own.

I can't disagree with any of that ( well apart from the workflow thing. If you use anything long enough it becomes simple so that it's not an issue how you do it as long as you can do it effectively and economically. I digress though )

I think the problem the OP has is that they underestimate the amount of learning it will take in any software, to become proficient at processing and or manipulating images. My point was that if they have photoshop ( a reasonable assumption given their dislike of the 'user-friendliness' of it then it might be worth just putting the effort into a few Linda courses and learning how to use it as opposed to the further expense of Lightroom which also might prove to be unfriendly to this particular user.
Thankfully there are trial versions so the user can make up their own mid.

Otherwise i agree. I have lightroom. Would not be without it. I rarely leave photoshop when working but it's nice to have the tools should i need them. Luckily enough for Adobe account users ( and that would include anyone already using a registered copy of photoshop, ) Lightroom 4 beta is free to download and test.
