haha. true true. you wouldn’t want your software copied too easily. but i still think they should just lower the prices, include real user’s manuals, and maybe, just maybe, piracy would be reduced. look at the excuses software companies give out (especially m$). people are being tricked into buying $5 software, thinking its original. people won’t be getting tech support. people might get viruses. let’s see, people buy the $5 software because they know its exactly the same as the real thing. and they are getting it cheaper. people don’t really need tech support, especially since these days you have to pay for support. i mean, how hard is it to find a friend that knows how to use some software (like, duh, windows?)? and viruses are almost non-existent with pirated software, since pirates also need customer confidence in their items. so no viruses there. sorry this is getting long. its just that, they can sell there products for a lower price, sell more, and get more loyal customers. instead, what software companies are doing now is punishing the customers (cough cough WPA), instead of punishing the pirates. sucks.
