Any downside to Silkypix?

Last time I went through the "which RAW processor to use?" I settled on RawShooter - which was fine until Adobe decided to buy the company and stop development.

Which was recoverable because they gave Lightroom 1 to registered Rawshooter users. Happyish with the processing options that Lightroom gives, but don't care for Adobe as a company, and really dislike all the cataloguing nonsense (quite capable of organising that for myself thankyou).

Now here comes Lightroom 2 as a paid-for upgrade (I know I don't have to upgrade, but past experience tells me that older versions of Adobe stuff get left high-and-dry). For whatever reason I can't reach the Adobe website this week.

So I looked around again, mostly at Silkypix because it was a near miss last time I paid for PP software - Version 3 seems a step up from Version 2. Started a trial, like the results. Takes a bit of adjusting to, but I think I'm mostly there.

But, are there any bears lurking in the undergrowth that would make me regret?

In the interim I've looked casually at most of the alternatives - haven't been much tempted. But if anyone knows something that's "streets ahead" that would be interesting.
