Pros: Small footprint for the multi-function program.

Cons: Can be difficult for a novice to understand, easy for those with at least rudimentary knowledge of SQL Databases.

Other Thoughts: It could have more thought gone into the explanation of the various tools, rather than bloating the basic program with more applications than is actually necessary.
