Why you would prefer one?

Lightroom for 90+ percent of stock work. Reasons: same RAW conversion as PS, basic editing without creating large PSD files, simpler keywording, creates a database making it easy to navigate through your collection and do things like assigning keywords/descriptions to groups of images.

It is like to ask "do you prefer a hammer or a screwdriver?"
They are different tools

I use Photoshop as it has video and image tools that are important to my work flow.

Photoshop. Just out of habit. I learned in it and have developed my workflow to work with it.

Frankly, I don't like/understand how lightroom manages files/edits but that is mostly because I haven't spent the time to sort it out/set it up properly. Ultimately, it is a quicker/easier program to use.

Both. For personal shots, there are many that I just use LR because it does a very good job with most basic post processing. For stock, all images move from LR to Photoshop.

I don't like Lightroom much in terms of how it works and the UI, but the RAW processing is really good and I find it much easier to use than the Camera RAW module in Photoshop (possibly just because of where I've spent the time learning the ropes)

LR and Helicon for the majority of my work with a touch of PS and Nik.

I don't make extreme post-production. For this reason  in the past I liked Aperture.  Now I use LR

with lightroom I reversed my workflow - I used to process images in PS and only add iptc when they were ready to upload - downside is if I go back to the originals and do other processing I'd have to re-add meta data

now I use lightroom to add all metadata to new images and archive unprocessed copies

the resulting images are then triaged to various folders for sharpening, lighting, noise, etc.  to be processed as I have time.   finally groups of images are resized in LR to 12, 6 or 4MP and submitted to agencies
