As soon as I started doing commercial work, I bought SW Premium.

At the time the files I was creating in the Premium version did not look any different from the Student one, although my reseller said an expert could tell by looking at the code.

Spending a lot of cash on the "proper" version was a personal preference, as although no-one could really tell I wanted to maintain my professional integrity.

However, just opened an old student file and it now comes up with a warning every time the file is opened and each part in an assembly has a "mortar board" next to it to indicate that the part is from the student versions.

Not before time.
