As a fellow UK person, I find it slightly embarasing that you would potray pirated software in such a way.

I'm an open source programmer by night, but a closed source programmer by day, which pays the bills. I am fully against pirate software, as I'm sure many people on here are.

Either pay for the software you use, or use an open source alternative. Stealing is stealing. You wouldn't be impressed if I broke into you house tonight and stole your TV. It's no different, not matter what you might think!!!

I just read through this thread with a fine toothed comb and I didn't get the idea anyone here promoted using pirated software. There was for some reason a mention of people that had to re-buy Windows because it turned out their copy wasn't legit, and there was a comment about security having nothing to do with pirated vs. non-pirated but I didn't detect anyone actually promoting it.
