Is the Included Software Compatible with OSX Lion?

I am not having any joy installing the SilkyPix editing software on my Mac. I suspect it may not be compatible with OSX Lion. Does any one know either way?
The next question is, is it worth using it? At present I tend to do what little post processing I do with iPhoto. Should I persevere and try and get the SilkyPix software working, should I stick with iPhoto or option c. consider getting Aperture perhaps?

Any thoughts or help would be great.

Are you asking about the official Pentax software? If you want to develop RAWs, it does a very good job, and yup it should work.

Right click (or control click) on the Pentax and select Show Package Contents. Then click on Contents->Resources->OSX and double click INSTPUT041.pkg (or whatever version comes with the K5). After you have installed the CD version download the 4.33 updater from Pentax.
