I don't know what price the IBM product is, but FP sells for somewhere
$100-150 depending on where you buy it. Given its popularity, its
MS features, and its wide-spread acceptance, why would you want to saddle
with anything else? Especially when you consider that you're going to make
the difference with 2-3 hour's billable work?
Buy both, if you're in a quandary, but if you only can buy one, go with the
that's most likely to get you work or clients - FP.
If you're going to look at a different package, at least look at one with
some acceptance - Composer, Cold Fusion, etc.
