If you have acquaintances, or classmates, in the same boat,
you could try getting together with them to buy the software,
and pass it around. There's nothing illegal or sleazy in that:
you use it enough to learn it, then take it off your computer
and give it to the next person, and so on. Maybe someone with
Ventura who wants to know Framemaker would be willing to make
such a swap, or you could visit and use each other's machines
if you don't want to keep installing and deinstalling software.
