    but generally speaking, to answer your question, NO! Everything that
    these so-called "utility suites" offer can be found for free,

    There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".

    Depends on where you are and who you work for. If you happen to work for one of the Places providing the suites then you'll most likely think that the offering is the best thing since sliced bread.

    If you don't happen to work for them, then like most people you'll already know that nearly everything that comes in the suite is available free.

    Of course most of those are only free to use in a domestic application if you are in a Commercial Setting then yes they most likely are worth buying. Though you may end up buying several different apps and not the offered suite.
