I have worked for many years as a contractor.

Here are licenses that I maintain:

- Adobe Acrobat Professional
- oXygen XML Editor (they have great support for DITA Open Toolkit)
- Sublime Text Editor (you can use it for free, but it's good so I want to
support the effort)
- MS Office for Mac
- Omnigraffle
- Final Draft (one of my hobbies is writing drama)


In the past I did maintain a license for Frame but for several years I have
worked in DITA and also Sphinx-doc (a python-based Web publisher that can
be confugured to output to Latex-pdf, and for which plug-ins are available
for other output.
