EGuide is part of the Base SAS distribution. You can't use EGuide without having SAS to do the actual computations. You can get SAS On Demand for learning; it's not expensive for professionals and free for academic course use ( http://support.sas.com/learn/ondemand/ ).
As far as why there is not a general free version, that is a business decision that you won't get an answer for on this forum.

Check with your company. Unless SAS has changed its license, if you are covered by your company's license and your company allows it, you can load the licensed software on as many computers as you want (including a home computer).
The license is user not station specific. As I recall, a user is only allowed to access SAS on one computer at a time, but can have copies on as many computers as desired.
