And even if not a freelancer then self-employed (even if part time) would also fall under commercial use. Actually my earlier post was largely rhetorical since, as a software developer myself, I would consider anyone using my software as part of earning an income to be making commercial use of the software.

One question that's not rhetorical: How about an "academic editions" - such as those offered by Microsoft Office, does such a licence allow you to make commercial use of the software? A brief look at that licence shows only that you must be a "Qualified Educational User", I can't find that it limits what use such a user may put the software to ... though I would be surprised if they didn't have something to say on the subject somewhere.
