Patches are free. ITRC is free.  There's even a script that will 
analyze your install and tell you what patches you don't have.  I 
certainly had no problems using all free resources to support me when I 
was first learning how to use and support the OS.  Later I also used an 
online resource for building an HP-UX Bastion host so there's plenty of 
stuff out there.  It's certainly not unsupportable like IRIX can be in 
the hobby sense.  A lot of commercial products and upgrades ("full 
package kind of stuff") are also free.  You can get pre-packaged and 
configured Apache with Webmin, Commercial SSH, etc... all free.
