I used Umbraco succesfully before I even knew about WebMatrix. It has an easy download and setup program from its own website. What is the benefit of throwing WebMatrix in the mix?

WebMatrix has a specific target audience:
1. Those coming from a php like background who wish to get started with asp.net.
2. Those who know quite well what they're doing with asp.net and have found a specific task where the simplicity of webmatrix is helpful.
If you're happy with not using webmatrix, I'd suggest just stick to what you're using at the moment. [The downloading of the umbraco project can be done just as easily with the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.]

WebMatrix was not developed solely as a download tool for Umbraco users. If that's all you are likely to use if for, then I would suggest that there is no benefit to you at all in using it.
