I think the answer is B...

It is between B and C...

Whereas is good when you compare large companies to other companies, but here the comparison is between one software to other type of software...so "since" is better???

I will go for B....
I will be really angry if the answer is "c"

B is my choice...

This is a good one. I hope I am right here.

I think "since" is not used for comparision. It is used for giving a reason. The first part of the sentence already has a reason( see the word "because"). The only thing that can come later is a contrast word like "whereas"

C - IMO is the best
