The fact the one can not afford something, does not make it expensive. Price is a relative value. In most of the Western world, 140USD+VAT is hardly bank breaking for anyone with a job, even if it takes a while to save up. Yes, not all of us are fortunate enough to be in a place where that amount of money is pocket cash, however, there are great open source alternatives.
You obviously would like to be in a position that allows you for a purchase - having a job paid well enough that generates some level of disposable income. Why than, would you want others to work for pennies?
