There you go bringing economics into it.

The time you spend trying to get a tool ill suited to the job working correctly pays for the license as well [1].

[1]: At re:Invent last year I found myself in a moderately long line for a 'free' adult beverage.  Someone noted the length of the line, and the likely income of the persons forming it given where we were and what we do for a living.  A quick Fermi calculation yielded a combined annual income in excess of $2M*, all waiting for a free beverage costing $2.

* She Who Must Be Obeyed thinks re:Invent would be the perfect place for her college-mates (all female) given there are 40,000 mostly male, many single, socially inept IT guys who probably make a decent living.

SWMBO is that smart, I'm not.  Several years ago I took her to the Re:Play party.  The music was louder than flight operations on an aircraft carrier (I know these things) and the lines for food were as epic as the music was loud.  A huge gap formed in one of the lines as someone took too long to decide which slice of pizza they wanted; she jumped in and got what she wanted from the next table while the other 300 people waited patiently.

Sometimes it's good to be married to someone who sees the world differently.
