Intended non-use of software may have an impact on question applicability
The help centre notes:
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
A strict reading of the bolded phrase would rule out a question if you did not intend to use the software, as it would not be a[n] "actual problem that you face".
It can't be right, can it?
I did what I always do when a user appears to have solved their question and submits a comment to indicate that fact. That was the sole reason for my close vote.
Also, a person is entitled to also try different software, it doesn't mean they are no longer going to try that other software, and it doesn't make a question invalid.
