After recent experiences I am almost sure, that free and open software is the only option. I hope that Gimp finally become mature piece of software. I'm also waiting for this kind of raw processor (lightzone maybe, or ufraw). Digikam can be alternative for image management...

By your own admission the free software isn't mature (or as mature as the paid for tools) yet so it isn't yet an option. What is more just as many free software packages get abandoned as paid ones so even if a piece of free software is suitable it may not exist in a years time.
