I read that the trial version allows me to use it properly during 30 minutes.
That's not entirely true. After 30 minutes of usage the system will slow down to a crawl, but after reboot it will run normally... For another 30 minutes. And so on and so on. So plenty of time to use the OS and decide if it's worth that 79 EUR for you.
Yes, and rebooting is quick.
Some of the more economically challenged developers (like the developer of Cinnamon Writer) even started out writing code with the 30 minute evaluation limit in place.
