It's about 4x my mobile phone bill, monospaced, and we have it more expensive here in Europe, so I'm paying around $70 a month for two pieces of software.
Of course it's affordable in a business context — but what I absolutely resent is being tied-into an upgrade pattern that I would never have willingly entered into were I still able to buy hard copies every 2, 3, 4, etc years.
Again - from my perspective, I've already bought all the functionality I need from this software, many years ago, but I'm locked into a repeated forced upgrade path because of their file formats' 'planned obsolescence'.
