After LR CC, where should the enthusiasts go to?

Understandably, the focus after the news of LR shifting to full subscriptions is on the needs of pros.

But what options do you think amateurs, enthusiasts and non-pros have? If I only shoot every now and then, and work on RAW once in a while, it is simply absurd to paying for a subscription to merely access your own files.

First, is there any way to export the LR (ver. 5) catalogue into another RAW editing software? I am shuddering just thinking how I will sit and edit those several hundreds of RAW photos and get them to be where they are in LR now! Or, am I missing something here?

Are there RAW editors that you particularly recommend for Mac OS users? And is this the time to now fully shift to Apple Photos as the cataloguing software together with a RAW editor?

What is my choice of paid RAW editors?

And Open-source?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
