Default Entirely New PSP?

I won't be able to test drive this one. If anyone is trying the new version, please post your thoughts.
Looking at the new features, it seems that this is an entirely new piece of software, using the Paint Shop Pro registered trademark name. There is a 30 day trial period, so perhaps I might try it. Especially appealing is the concept that I could lighten or rotate many different pictures in a folder without picking up and putting down each one in turn, something I do with some frequency with real estate house pictures.

PSP X2 is US$99.99 or $59.99 as an upgrade, but I may be to far back for an upgrade. Worse, upgrades generally remove the old version, something I don't want to happen. Still, these prices are modest compared with Adobe Photoshop CS3, US$649 on their web site.

I would not buy an upgrade from PSP 8, especially since I bought PSP 6 on eBay, after finding many features that I liked gone in the upgrade to PSP 8.
