Nobody forces someone to by a software. It is always a decision of you. If someone doesn't need 3D Coats functionality, this is ok.
zBrush went a long way to be where the tool is placed today. It was a hobby project at the early beginning. zBrush needed years to build such a community, like it is today. 3D Coat is new in the market. And nobody can expect a perfect software or dozens of tutorials in one or two years of developement. Especially when there is a big competition with tools, which are already established in the market.
In my opinion every software lives with and from the users (Hope you understand my english?). The users are important in two ways: First, to allow the developers to earn enough money to produce a better software and second, the users build and are the community which serves all the needed tutorials and feedback. The developers are not able to manage such a big task themself. Only a big interest group can safe a good position in the market.
So, please don't compare the tools in such a way, like I read here. Try to stay objective. If you need 3D Coat, it's nice, if you need zBrush it's nice, too. If you need both, hey - why not? Use the tools you need.
