when it comes to my country, its like we have no choice. if a "real" copy is bought, then everyone will think that guy is just plain rich. ohh and softwares are extremely expensive. Its like heyy... you think your computer is expensive? now wait till you see the cost of Adobe Creative Suite
or contemplate the price lists from adobe.com
Adobe® After Effects® 7.0-Buy from US $999 yay theres nirvana
Adobe® Photoshop® CS2-Buy from US $649
Adobe® Illustrator® CS2-Buy from US $499
thing is i Adobe for making these wonderful tools
Gosh, I hadn't realized I've saved US $1148. I'm not worth that. Selling a dessert cart of my organs I could even cumulatively be worth that. I really should pull that backup disk from under my bed. And, you know, get insurance on it.
the guys from adobe, macromedia or from other programs dont care if you use pirated software. the money the win isnt from us (personal use) they just dont care, the big money comes from design companies. They even let u use pirated software to u talk to ur boss and tell him to buy to his company this software.
the world doesnt stop spining
there are programs to pay for? can't imagine - dude, show me what you mean, I don't understand anything. Do you mean music too? I bought an album once, but then I finally got an internet connection and so I didn't have to pay for it anymore. isn't that nice? - how is anyone supposed to develop skills? Every damn business requires state of the art skillz and experiences. So to follow your interests you would have to pay thousands of dollars just to find out whether you like this kind of computer stuff or you hate it. there's always a sort of tolerance I guess.
