Something to keep in mind is the following:

1. They have a free linux version.
2. They did a massive giveaway of their Windows version a few years ago, and
more than once.
3. 1&2 numbers can be used as numbers for "developers" even if there is no
real proof the developer didn't simply delete after downloading.
