Your correct in that there's no difference between the premium and free versions and it's just to support the developers. The only thing I think you may get if you pay for the premium version is early upgrades if I'm remembering right.
FBReader is pretty nice but there is one thing I've noticed that I really haven't looked into is that it doesn't support italics. I haven't looked into the html for the affected epubs so I'm not sure if it's just those books using some italics code that's not the norm (if there is one) and could be fixed with just running them through Calibre's conversion process.
