   There is no amount because you can't use their name that way.

That is simply wrong.  Microsoft (or any other entity that holds a
trademark on something) can give permission to use the actual
trademark, what it might cost is up to the trademark holder.

   you could not say "Colin's Microsoft Text Editor."

Given permission from the trademark holder, yes you could.

   Similarly, you could not say "Colin's IBM App" or "Colin's SuSE App"
