blah blah blah. it is costing this or that. If people do not have the cash to buy the software cause it costs as much or more than a new system, what do you expect. We all know Mississippi is in the top 3 of the worst states in the U.S. for economy and living conditions. So there you have it!

why do Mississippi people download more warez than the NY people? there must be some reasonable explanation…?

WRFan, did you even read the article? “The numbers measured are those of business software and not software pirated for personal use.”

Well hell, y’all, if cousin Billy Bob wans to you know borrow mah proggies, I’d be inclined to, jus go ahead an do it, fuck all them uptight yankee piss holes anyway…

Bobsen, it’s people like you that make me glad abortions are legal. Anyway, you’re just a jealous prick.

“…New York’s business are the most diligent in obtaining legal software - even though software piracy there still runs at 11.9 per cent…” The most diligent eh? And it still rates in at 11.9%. God almighty, you Americans really are an honest bunch aren’t you? Here in good ol’ blighty it’s probably going to be more like 15-20% in the most diligent of areas!!!

One last question… if the folk of Mississippi are so bad off financially but piracy is SO high then how come the PC ownership rates are high? It must be like the asylum seekers here… they gets what they ask for - and they asks for a lot!!! :+

The high rate of PC onwership is due to the fact that the witness protection program, in a werid sense of payback, relocates more people there.

pc ownership rates are probably correlated to the fact that you gotta be smart to spell mississippi
