The certainly shouldn't cost as much as they do. It really sucks.

Would using a GNU\Linux distrobution be an option? Most of these OSes are free, like Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Steam has a native linux client as well and you can attempt to use WINE to install windows software. If this isn't an option then forking over 100+ bux is likely the only legal option.
