For the first part of the above, I would guess you just haven't used that many languages/IDEs, there are plenty that do not have autocomplete, or even any editor other than a plain text based one, but as I said before, it is a nice feature to have, just not a *must* have feature, and there are many ways to get it without paying a dime such as in various plugins, etc again, as I had mentioned previously.
For the second part, the charged version ($79. ) is not
charging for that feature alone, there are 2 other features not available in the free Oss version, the ability to use all
3rd party extensions, and the ability to submit to the Apple app store (free apps). Both of those I would think contribute more to the price than autocomplete, again since you can achieve ac in so many other ways.

As Klaus pointed out, that is up to you of course, I certainly don't intend to waste your
time, your thread was just one of two where this subject had come up and various other people may
be interested to know it.
HOWEVER, as Richard pointed out, many other editors can be used to edit Lc scripts, not just the one that Lc ships with or GLX2. Limit yourself, and you

, but you'll expand your
