Ceramic knives: opinions

I was in a trendy little kitchen store over the weekend and was (willingly) seduced into buying a ceramic paring knife. I watched as the thing glided through an orange, shaving it into paper-thin slices, and thought this little item would make my life bliss. So I bought it.

So far I'm happy with it, and understand it needs special care, etc, but am wondering if they really compare favorably to steel knives, and what your opinions are on them if you use them.
