I’m asking out of curiosity.
In my own case, I pay for Office 365 annually, and in the last 5 years I’ve paid for a new version upgrade to Beyond Compare (which I use on both Windows and Linux), contributions to Ubuntu, Linux Mint, FSF, the GNU Octave program (and I get the UW-Madison Engineering Dept magazines to prove it), and The Document Foundation (LibreOffice). Out of laziness I’ve also bought internal password removers for PDFs and VBA projects in Office documents so I don’t have to keep using a hex editor and multiple file open-close operations. I also pay contributions for the odd browser add-in. I average about US$300 annually.
<p>I use Beyond Compare also, but I don't have the need to upgrade annually. Are the updates that big?</p><p><br></p><p>I pay annually is Office 365, so I can take advantage of all 5 TB offering in Onedrive. I also pay for Photoshop CS/Lightroom. I also pay for a VPN service, NordVPN. Basically those are the only software I have intend to pay on frequent recurring basis. </p>
<p>Only the Android OS that comes bundled with the five Android devices I bought over the last five years, nothing else. I did send two bitcoin donations totaling $56 just this weekend, to the developers of open-source Android apps that I downloaded for free from the Play Store.</p><p><br></p><p>Btw, this site should accept some crypto-currencies, at least for donations.</p>
