Your most valuable investment in Linux

Hi everyone,
I am just curious if any of you can share the information about what software (excluding OS) you have ever bought for linux (yeah, I mean put your bloody earned money into linux software). I know some of you can mention business solutions and such, but I am more interested in the soft for end-users.
As for me, to this day I think $24.95 spent on crossover plugin from guys is the most valuable investment into linux I've ever commited.
