Subject: Bookup vs other opening software

I wanted to study openings too but was not sure which program to use Chessbase,
Chess Assistant 8.1, the Comprehensive Chess Openings 2005, Openings Instructor,
and Bookup.  If someone has Chessbase do they really need Bookup?
I like the way Comprehensive Chess Openings 2005 list the openings in their
openings table mode its like BCO but cannot use a external chess engine, only
can use built in Crafty.  For the money, for Bookup Pro, I could buy Chess
Assistant 8.1 mega and then link up uci engines (I hope so).  I already have
Chessbase but afraid to add to books and screw up the opening books. Maybe the
Chessbase program can do everything Bookup can but I don't know how to use it
correctly. I have been sitting on the fence for awhile and cannot make up my
mind about buying Bookup.  If someone can help please guide me on how to best
improve and learn openings I will be grateful.  Cost is not really important but
value is.
