Well, you're comparing /one/ open source tool there to a combination of
several closed source applications.
I think you will find equal capability with a number of open source
applications.

Of course, you will need to devote equal time to becoming competent
within each one, but with the community aspect of open source and help
files that actually function, this is no considerable hurdle.
Cheers!
