    I pirate software, unless it's something so cheap and so much work put into it, then I just buy it because I feel guilty, but on the other hand, f*%$ 800$ for Photoshop a editing program I just want to use once to create a poster to sell my used Wii that I got 3 years ago.

    Depends on the software. Some things I buy, some things I just use a working copy someone else made of his bought software :D

    Nearly the same with music - I download and listen to it; if I like it, I buy the CD. Especially because I'm mostly listening to 'smaller' bands; I don't really like mainstream music. Just doesn't suit my ears :rolleyes:

    Why ptd?

    Well, I was a legit user of Vista. Then I had to update my BIOS to run my sweet SLI rig and BINGO no more act1vation.

    Yes, I rang M$ and they gave me a new key. Yes, I posted the issue on M$ forum. No, they could not give me an answer as to why they pooched my key because of a BIOS upgrade.

    MB serial number, sure! BIOS version, no way!

    Keep out of my BIOS damn you! :mad:

    i bought vista. (oem, got it fairly cheap thru work...)

    ms kills it after 2 yrs....

    so screw it, im getting my moneys worth. pirated win7.

    i like it, if i can find a cheap oem, i may purchase the real license. but currently, i don't care.

    games that i will invest real time into, or will replay consistantly - definate purchase.

    games i will play once or twice..im not spending $70cnd (yes, games up here are 70bux).

    Official of course! :rolleyes:

    I need sleep SO badly! I started reading that like "Learn to touch yourself in silence..." and started again: "Learn silence...". I'm way too tired to understand what I'm reading, so repairing certain hardware has to wait. I think we all know that doing something important is not a good idea when you're tired... :D

    Both actually, most of my official is from free giveaways, but I have paid for most of the software that I use for "work". Most of the games that I play on a regular basis are paid for.

    Operating systems, who can tell?
