My confusion was over your insistence on a free license for commercial use.
I don't consider it inappropriate for someone to charge me for something
they've created. And if I'm making a profit, presumably I have money to
spend on tools. So the fact that software costs money shouldn't preclude it
from consideration, esp. in a commercial context.

While cheaper initial cost is better, it's not the only criteria I use in
selecting my tools. (The corporate-speak for this is "TCO".)
