You are implying here that you do not respect copyrights and you
assume that we are all dishonest like you are.
I, as an individual, do not use any pirated program. To me it is
a point of honor that makes me feel good and free.
I don't need to steal. Free open source programs help me stay
ethical while using and enjoying quality software.
I heard a few windozers saying that their programs are free
because they did not pay for them, We don't share the same
definition of freedom.
The mercantilist (press the lemon till the last drop) software
system makes burglars from otherwise would be fairly honest
Ask yourself the right questions.
