I've always been a champion of software piracy but for one reason....cost. Never thought I'd see the day that MS would put an end to this for me but they have. There is just 48 hours or so left to get your copy of Windows 8 Pro for $39.99. I would like to encourage everyone here, if you haven't already, to do so. No more activators, hacktivators, patches etc....just a legit key. No more excuses.
