I don't mind paying somebody to write new bits of free (as in speech) software.

MS Office/Windows here! :P Really can't stand Open Office. Guess it'd be different if I started off on it, but trying to go MS Office to it, No no no :P

Real expertise and educational content. Pretty much every school employs a network manger of some description, every school has a similar-ish set of requirements, if every time we needed a bit of software we could all just get together and write it we wouldn't have to pay for any more software again, ever.

Assuming that all Network Managers were devs which is not the case.

Microsoft Volume Licensing / School Agreement
I know some folks complain about it but for the money it costs on an annual basis and the flexibility it offers (ie. freedom to update to the lasest version whenever you like/etc) it's a bargain IMO!

Personally - Spotify Premium (love having the songs on my phone, ipod, laptop etc and they all sync without me doing anything!)
Professionally - Windows Server 2008R2. Much better than 2003, 2003R2, and 2008 (and anything prior) IMO.

Windows desktop and server licences, Office licences. Resent paying for CALs, just seems such a con. Also Papercut, CS and Solidworks are worth it.

Personally: Mac OS X software, pretty cheap

+1, the amount of Enterprise-level software you get for the price is unbeatable
