Can you please include the following in your answer: 
- Are the free alternatives (if any) good enough to get the job done? 
- What are the other alternatives possible (include student versions, trial versions etc.)?

Trials and student versions explicitly say that they are not to be used for commercial use. Commercial licenses are a big deal(financially) for all firms. They're just part of the cost of doing business.

and I thought my $20 lead holders were expensive... that changed when I saw how much software subscriptions costs. In the end, the cost of software is wrapped up in the professional fees.
