Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

I attributed those things to you because they can be inferred by previous things that you said. For example you said:

"your words were it didn't work, which was a direct result of using a pirated copy".

This means that you believe the first issue I raised was a result of using a pirated copy. If this is the case then you must logically believe that anyone else having this problem must also be running a pirated copy. See how I make that connection?

This also implies that either you think that MS deliberately rigged it not to work on pirated systems, or you think it's just a coincidence, and I just wanted to clarify which you believed.

You said:

"you already admitted it caused an issue before denying it later"

When did I admit that it caused an issue?, and when did I deny it? Please paste the text.

Frankly, I think that you read the first paragraph of my post, got annoyed that I pirated some software, and shot off at the mouth. And you've been trying unsuccessfully to make your position tenable since then.

Bottom line. None of my issues; I repeat NONE of my issues were caused by piracy.

They are all a result of a very crap upgrade implementation by Microsoft, and had you read on, you would have quickly realised that.
