In the News Pocket Informant is one of the most successful PDA applications ever. However, it has not been immune to software piracy. The CEO of WebIS posted an open letter explaining how software piracy is hurting the industry, but also the consumer too and especially small software houses like his.

And about that supposed compatibility, Vista is seriously crippled in that area.
For example, DVD apps and burning apps (Nero comes to mind), did not work at all in the beginning and had to be patched in order to work. Too bad I hate the bloated Nero 7+ (where they included even the kitchen sink), since that's the only version that works now.

Same with 3DMark and PCMark.
Same with alot of software.

If software needs to be patched in order to work at all, then the operating system is _not_ compatible.

Hell, even virus makers were quicker to port their viruses than the antivirus makers were porting their antivirus apps.

Oh, and I work as a computer technician, building, configuring, installing, servicing computers for customers. So I've used Vista quite alot and I find it absolutely horrible and incredibly annoying (with all the UAE and DRM crap for example).
