Yup, paying customers get the shaft.

If you want to try playing in a virtual machine, I believe you can use free tools to convert a physical installation to virtual (P2V) for use in the free VMware Player, which supports DX9 acceleration in XP and up. You won't get native GPU speed, but it might suffice for older games.
