People should always consider the old, but true saying - "you get what you pay for".  For small jobs where your budget is very small these "free" software bundles make sense.  As products / projects get more expensive, support becomes increasingly more important to control schedule.  Great- you got the software, and found a bug - now YOU need to spend money (time) to find out what's wrong rather than the vendor.  When the vendor does it - you're schedule isn't hit so hard.
