Don, provided you don't have some specific need that really does require Windows, you could eliminate all your software costs by switching to Linux.

Hardware requirements vary (although I think it's typically lighter than Windows) but if were on an older machine that for example struggles with the KDE desktop, you could always opt for LXDE or perhaps XFCE desktops.
