Imaging software
given cost, should be simple
bane of existence

Anyway, science for me mostly consists of image analysis and optimization, making figures, etc. I've tried 5-6 free programs that should do 3-D images, and, of course, none of them quite work. This means moving onto the not-free programs. And one of those not-free programs is $5000 for one non-movable license. For that, it should do backflips and be able to read my mind. But, alas, it does not. I have even had to read the manual.
Life lesson of the day: If you want to make ridiculous amounts of money in science, get into research technology.
