    i thought this was funny

    from an ms website

    >Pirated software may contain harmful viruses

    like pc-cillin

    >Ineligibility for technical support or product upgrades

    no more two hour waits on hold with tech support

    >High legal costs and fines

    "who . . . me. nah, i'm just keeping a backup for my friend"

    >Software compatibility issues

    like netscape and xp

    >By spending money on counterfeit software, [money . . . wha?]which is often manufactured by organized criminals[what, like lindows], customers are also inadvertently [nix the 'in'] stifling the growth potential of the [unrelenting monopolies who joyfully break the law and lie under oath in order to squeeze yet one more dollar out of a desicated and chaffed] economy and contributing to the loss of tax revenue [somebody give me a tissue] and employment [of billy's man-servants].

    Burn the CDs. that's what they were made for!!!

    if someone worries too much about viruses in pirated software (even though it is true), let them not buy pirated cds. i, however, am NOT paying 10 times the price to buy the original CD.
    I am the Alpha and the Omega!!!

    Makes perfect sense to me, only a fool would keep their backups right next to the originals!

    I not pro-pirate but this stuff from MS is funny.

    I like this line:

    >>In addition, product upgrades—less expensive upgrades of
    >>existing products—are not available to you.

    If someone's going to pirate version 1 of something why would they want to buy version 2? Wouldn't they just get a pirated copy of it? Whatever idiot (at MS) wrote this crap should be smacked with a stick from the obvious tree.
