There's some excellent commentary over at HackerNews. Looks like the UI is universally hated (I didn't think it's so bad).

Within that thread is a link to a LWN article worth reading, about some security flaws and the project owner's somewhat arrogant refusal to fix them. Looks like calibre may be open source in that you can see the source code. But the project owner isn't overly open to taking bug reports, it seems. Oh well, a one-man project! He's not the only one!

I've messed with the conversion part a few times and I agree with the commenter who said it's hard to figure out (I don't care what it looks like, but it uses programmer logic, not user logic). In fact after a few go-rounds (and discovering it doesn't respect my file locations) I stopped bothering. :(
