And so am I.
If I do a research for tools needed for a project, I also prefer free, Open Source tools.
But sometimes there isn't the appropriate tool for free, it's that simple.
If you have to migrate from Oracle to a (legacy) DB2 w/o the possibility to get the necessary tools or to updade to a more recent version, there's something fundamentally wrong with you project planning.
Think about it, just compare the costs you're generating by poking around for all these days just because you can't achieve the right tool/update with the costs for that very tool/update. Or do you work for free on that project?
