    Myself, already knowing what what written above I have to say………..

    If you have the cash to lay out for a pirated copy of software than why not buy the real thing? THAT right there tells me that you are a cheap a$$ and that you deserve what you get. EVERYONE in this world knows that downloading or purchasing pirated software comes with some pretty big risks but if your going to purchase pirated software off some one off the street having no idea whether it works or not that is a pretty big durfwad move because now you have not only got software that has messed up your machine or has not installed at all but your cash is gone too! I bet if you went back to that corner spot where you bought this software from it is no longer there. AT LEAST if you downloaded it, you paid nothing for it and if you backed up everthing correctly all it would take is a system restore to get everything back to where it was.

    I understand there are times where you just don’t have the cash and just want to try the full blown version of something, but if you have the money then just buy it, you’ll get tech support and a WHOLE LOT less headaches not to talk about malware and viruses.

    When taking about privacy intrusion with pirated s/w, there is a Big hit back for MS: MS itself leaks/gives out info to third-party[eg:Skype-old leaked news] and fb selling profile info to cos[incl new fb home app], etc! And many s/w providers itself gathers more and more info from our genuine s/w, why pirated s/w are linked with privacy intrusion? We are tracked/hacked even with Genuine s/w and its version issues[bugs]! If genuine products are more and more cheaper with all features[not lite/low/skipped features], the more people will buy! First give a lesson to s/w providers on reducing costs and stop tracking then spread the reasons to buy Genuine s/w to others!

    Which idiot would PAY to not own software legally, when you can get same thing on internet for free, which is also more reliable if you know where to download it from?

    That’s all and good if you live in America, but in third world countries with poor purchasing power, the OS is VERY COSTLY. Here, it’s not about being a cheap ass but more on actually being poor. If I could afford it without having to sacrifice meals for days, I would.

    I have used all kinds of OS, Beside of Microsoft Provides many kinds of Operating systems , But Windows 7 is perfect OS for hd gaming with its all versions like; Starter, Home premium, Professional and Ultimate,
    Which has been used both for home as well as business purpose.I want to suggest for you to use only a full version of any OS to avoid lost of your backup files and precious time. Last time, I also need a license
    for Windows 8.1 pro, Which installed at my cousin’s PC, So I searched at Google to find a free license, but all in vain.
    Then one of my friend recommend me to buy it from: ODosta Store
    I bought it, Now I have Genuine, Which is working well.Cheers!
