Thanks. I'm very happy to see our forum site taking the high road on this topic. I work for a software vendor and have my entire professional life. So, piracy is a very important concept for me and one that I understand quite a bit better since my standard of living is dependent upon software sales. Fortunately for me, the types of software that I work with and support isn't a home user system....so piracy isn't rampant. I've grown quite fond of various open source options and freeware options that do a great job. Personally, if I cannot afford to pay for a piece of software, I'd rather use the free alternative rather than give the high priced vendor the time of day.

Wouldn't it be nice if Win-7 went "Open Source" like Firefox?
Give the worlds best programmers a shot at it. Just a thought.

Only if you want 322 different versions out there.... It works for Linux, but would be an epic FAIL for Windows 7...
