Use Bloomberg Terminal without having one?

1. For learning purpose:

I was wondering how to learn to use Bloomberg terminal without having one conveniently around?

Is there a free application that simulate a Bloomberg terminal for education purpose?

2. For application purpose:

Is there a free alternative of Bloomberg terminal for accessing historical and/or current financial data?

Thanks and regards!

Does Bloomberg Terminal have an software version that can be installed on any computer, instead of Bloomberg Terminal computer?

How much does a Bloomberg Terminal and/or its software cost?
Some public libraries have Bloomberg terminal
$1200/month....so no, not free. Also, Bloomberg estimates they have 300,000 global terminal subscribers. Do the math.

If you're in an office, it's possible to dial-in to a bloomberg terminal from your computer, but only if your office already has one.
