How much did iTunes, Final Cut, and Photoshop cost?

Maybe if those who pay for this software sent funds to open source
developers, equivalents can be improved.

I have used Photoshop in the past for basic tasks and I have found Gimp to
perform as well as I need.

I have heard good things about iTunes and Final Cut, but have not used.
What open source software are their closest alternatives?
