The very first day i got on the Internet, i joined up with one of those bullshit paysites and ended up paying for Kazaa Lite, and the file turned out to be a virus. I also paid for WinISO, which was useless and i ended up getting better results out of CDRWin (which i've never even had to go beyond the trial version).

*sigh* I guess i was naive back then. :)

But i know better now!! :huh: ;)

Cracked software is good for me. it's cheap, powerfull and usefull form me. I just download it from the official site and seeking the crack at underground site. So why should pay the software if you can get it for free from the net?
Warez!? hip, hip, Hooraay!!! :huh: Do you think software piracy is a crime (if you use it for youself)? :)

I've only cracked Nero, photo apps and some games and I usually support software that does not have a corporate interest behind it. Acid burn, Daemon Tools, CloneCD, E-Donkey and what not.

if programmers want to earn money they should do some good programming, if the soft was cracked then the programming was not good enough, programs get cracked because programmers are lazy, that´s the same reason why betas exist, in an ideal world, betas and patches wouldn´t exist, since you owuld have what you payed for, a finished bugless soft

alexis.
that's bullshit.

cause no matter how smart a programmer is and how hard he works on encryption and security some one will eventually find a way around it.

like the saying goes, build something fool proof and someone will build a better fool.

besides, don't you think that the money wasted on anti-piracy security and stuff would be better off spent on the software development itself or on bringing the software prices down.

exactly.

oh well that´s what crakcing say about it and i pretty agree with them, that´s not bullshit, if i payed for my xp, then why should i start dl service packs of several mb, to correct errors that should have never been there, just because the f*cking os was release before time and then have to patch it from time to time :(
that really annoys me and i pretty agree with that, if a program you have is a good work then buy it i totally agree with that, but when you have a piece of program like microshaft´s ones then to the heck with it, besides the one that robs a thief.......

The best way is : Never use Kazaa or p2p.
