I think the problem here is that the name super suite implies an integration at a level that one could assume is seamless, but, super suite is simply a collection of extensions bundled together that are sold to us collectively far cheaper than they would otherwise cost as individual purchases.

If I said Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection, then you would know what you are getting is a collection of software apps that are effectively unrelated in capability, but when used for their correct purpose can be part of a greater project. This is how I personally use the Super Suite even though it all resides inside of Dreamweaver. I use CSS Sculptor to start my site design, I might then use Data Assist to create a form for registration followed by Universal Email to send email confirmation. I might then use Security Assist to restrict access to certain areas of the site, and use cookies and then validation and so on. Each part of this process is an individual step by individual extensions which happen to be sold as a bundle.

It could be compared to the process of designing a magazine. A writer uses word, the images are manipulated in photoshop, logos designed in illustrator, but they are all bought together in InDesign which then output print ready PDF's to acrobat... you get my point!

What seems to be happening now is that WA are trying to bring all of the individual pieces of the puzzle together so that they are more integrated, just as Adobe have tried to do with their creative suite, but they won't get everything seamless!

As for your price gripe, perhaps you need to talk to sales. I queried the price because I own all extensions included in data bridge, just as I did with design extender, but the data bridge upgrade price was three times the price. Once I had it explained that the difference in price was due to not only combining the extensions but also giving a major overhaul and upgrade, I bought it... OK, I haven't loaded it yet due to the bugs, but they'll get ironed out within good time which I hope coincides with me upgrading to Lion and CS6... so come on WA... pull your socks up and fix DB because CS6 is nearly here ;o)

I'm not a coder, but I have to say, I don't know any coder that can create a section for admin as fast as I can with data assist. Within 10 to 15 minutes, I have an insert, update, delete, detail and results page. Three minutes per page... that's pretty quick!
