You can learn from anything, even the most restrictive commercial license, or are they going to capture you and burn that knowledge from your brain?
Just don't copy teh codez (and possibly copyrighted ideas and methods).
my problem with that is my brain copies to memory whether i want to or not, so if i spend some time with a sample that taught me how to do something, my code usually looks a lot like it. This is truer the less I understand about the subject

My group still uses VS2008 as our primary development tool. I would like to update to VS2017, or possibly VS2019. A change like that would require full regression testing at all levels in a code base somewhere around 3 million lines of C# and C++. That kind of test, even with parts of it performed in parallel to the upgrade process, would add weeks if not months to our schedule.
I'll freely admit that the volume of complaints of crashes and other bad behavior as compared to the lukewarm descriptions of new and enhanced features do not inspire me to push my PHB's to have us upgrade.
