Don't tell me you all here are buying all software that you use...i can put my money on bet that 99% of population here have some cracked software or ilegal copy of some program that you use on daily base..


You bet wrong. I do not have a single cracked or illegal copy of anything (software, music, or movies) on my computer at home or work. Maybe it's because I was raised differently; I was raised to do without if I couldn't afford something.

One day you'll have a job and when someone steals something of yours (an idea, a project, or whatever you produce) you might see things differently.

I buy everything I use. I make a living from using it, so I buy it. And I support the people that actually make the software, NOT just this forum.

It's not like these people making software aren't giving you access to try it and then buy it if you want. This isn't a case of "well, they're not making this TV show available in my area, but I want to see it now" kind of thing. You're wholesale stealing software that you're using a "crack" for, for no other reason that "oh, everyone else is doing it". Seriously? That's the excuse?

If you can't afford it, then don't use it. Plain and simple. It's 2012, do we really have to explain this to you now? Or are you one of those that feels entitled to everything?

I am the 1 percent.

I used to be in that 99%, but I saw the damage that was being done. Now I'm in the 1%, and I enjoy my software a lot more now knowing my money has benefited the company.

And that's partly due to the App Store. :apple:

Unless you're into games, you're essentially paying 49,99$ for VMWare Fusion 4. Which frankly is 49,99$ more than you should be paying for virtualization. Oracle's free Virtual Box products supports all the same major features (3D/2D acceleration, hardware virtualization through VT-x, resizable storage, remote access to VM consoles through VRDP, Seemless mode, auto-resize mode, etc... etc...).

Amen to that, and chances are that it's the 99% that consist of not having a single cracked/illegal copy of anything. At least here.
