Well, there are a number of things that I think would be done better if the program didn't have to pay attention to the needs of the conversion and device management; not enough attention is paid to indexing by format, for example, and personally I want to have an index that will actually tell me the full path and file name to each of my ebooks, or to gather them into a single place, much like iTunes does.

As I said before, Calibre is a very useful program that I will continue to use (even though it doesn't work properly on my mac, and tends to corrupt the prs-505 sometimes), but this is a different program with a different focus.
