Vramin, I don't want to sound like a omni fanboy but I just recently migrated from Things too. Don't give up on OmniFocus too quickly. The more GTD your process, the more you will absolutely love OmniFocus once you get used to it. As far as organizing, this tool is wonderful! I had a workflow and an organizational method in Things and I ended up dropping it when I migrated to OmniFocus, realizing later that parts of my workflow were based on limitations in Things.
Ok, I'm done slinging mud. Readers, sorry for the negativity but I remember cautiously coming over to OmniFocus only a month ago.
On a side note, when I migrated, in Things I printed my tasks to pdf, select all in the pdf and copy, then paste into a textedit document, make the textedit document text format and save it. Open the text document in omnioutliner and touch up a bit and save as omnioutliner format then you can import the tasks straight into OmniFocus. Sound like a bit much work but it was much less than copy pasting one at a time. Good luck!
