Anyway, in most countries stupid teenagers cannot be arrested (what a pity), and grown-up people usually buy their SW..
But if some companys had a version of there software that was affordable for a single non commercial licence or something, im sure some software like photoshop would have alot more people that actualy buy it. I love photoshop and would love to be able to afford to support it. But I dont have the budget. Neather does probably 50% of the people that use its software.
I do own both 2-3 copys of 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Vista Ultimate.
I do think its wrong to use cracked software. But I also think some companies could make alot more money if they had something setup for non-business, or personal use, users.
