Most peopple don't buy the GUI separately, they generally use what they 
have.. eg. Visual Studio or Eclipse.  We also ship Tortoise which is a 
very good GUI that beginners have no problems getting used to, and of 
course Workspace Manager that handles the more advanced features.

You *do* only have to buy one tool.  CVS Suite contains everything you need.

You make it sound like it's a bunch of free stuff thrown together. 
Nothing could be further from the truth.  It contains extra features - 
such as bug tracking and visual studio integration.  The ebook is worth 
the price alone IMO.

Even the packaged apps are customised to work better with our system & 
have more features that aren't in the free releases (we do contribute 
changes back to the projects but some of it is too specific to cvsnt to 
make it into any generic releases).
