Peanut et al. -

A couple of other RAW conversion software options to consider:
- PhotoNinja (www.picturecode.com/) - I have been using this for a while now and have been pleased with the results, especially when highlight recovery is needed (i.e, where you can't avoid dealing with brightly and dimly lit areas in the same scene). It seems to have a remarkable ability to make my pictures look like I thought they would when I took them (though I still usually have a few tweaks to add with Paint Shop Pro.)
- DxO OpticsPro (www.dxo.com) - recently I tested DxO and thought the output was better than PhotoNinja in some respects, and I liked that it supports dual monitors, so I can see the image at maximum size on one screen and have the controls on the other. However, I found it somewhat harder to use than PhotoNinja (though maybe just because I'm more familiar with PN's UI).

Both of these are a bit pricey, but they offer free trials. Whatever you decide to use, I'd encourage you to download and explore as many of the trials and free software as you can. You'll learn a lot in the process. Working with RAW Therapee (rawtherapee.com/) in especially instructive; if there are seven ways to accomplish a function, they give you the choice of all seven, so you can decide for yourself which you prefer!

Good luck with it - we look forward to seeing your results.
