And you are one reason that the price of the OS is where it is, pirating. You can call it whatever you want, but when you don't pay for your copy of Windows the rest of us have to pay more to make up for it. Justify it however you want, but that's the truth of it.[/QUOTE] How about Microsoft raises the price because people like you will pay it? Or the fact that Microsoft seemingly can't make a verison of Windows that can't be pirated?? Or the fact... you know what, on second thought, it's not worth it. Buy it if you want, or pirate it. Makes no difference to me. I will do what I want : ) my bad on the double post!
