IPtables vs commerical firewall

Can anyone tell me the advantage of a commercial Firewall to IPtables?

I understand some of the commercial Firewalls have the ability to block at the application level (facebook, etc).  Besides this, I am clueless.  Thanks.

For an opensource solution i also highly recommend iPFire. It is a very good nix based firewall and more Including proxy, content filter, etc.
