Panasonic's VideoCam Suite s/w problems - what's the latest?

I was all set to buy a Panasonic SDR-H60, (see my pre-record question, pah-lease) and then found all these posts about the horrors of the software. As a programmer, I figure either it's user error or a completely irresponsible manufacturer, one beyond belief. The only similar example I have ever seen was when eBay forced everyone to switch from TurboLister 1 to 2.
Anyway, is this still the software from hell? It hasn't been updated since May of 2007, apparently, which would give one pause.
If I were planning to only use SD cards, couldn't I just take them out of the camera, put them in my laptop and/or desktop's SD reader, and move them manually? I actually have no interest in the HDD. Has anyone done this?
