Considering the HIGH prices of VSTS, any suggestion what to choose

Well folks, considering the high prices for the current VSTS MSDN Premium
subscription, I propose we take a pause and look of what each one of the 3
possible package DOES NOT have:

Team Edition for Software Architects: Unit Testing, Code Coverage / Dynamic
Code Analyzer, Static Code Analyzer, Code Profiler / Load Testing, Manual
Testing, Test Case Management, and Web Testing

Team Edition for Software Developers: Application Designer, Logical
Infrastructure Designer, Deployment Designer / Load Testing, Manual Testing,
Test Case Management, and Web Testing

Team Edition for Software Testers: Dynamic Code Analyzer, Static Code
Analyzer, Code Profiler / Application Designer, Logical Infrastructure
Designer, Deployment Designer

I understand that the Architect version is the loser, since its major
features (App, Logical, Infra & Deployment Designer) are aimed mostly at big
companies, not small ISV or consulting.
As for choosing Developer or Tester version, we might choose if we would
want Code Analysis cycle or Test cycle to be covered. This must be a tough
decision...
Maybe there r good free tools (or at least cheap ones) that could cover this
lack in each one of them...

Any suggestions, ideas or opinions r broadly welcome!

The word,"are" is correctly spelled 'are' - not 'r'

There's a nice open-source tool for unit testing, called nUnit (a port
of JUnit, aimed on Java).

OK, the next time I will make it right. Do you have any opinion about what I
