Its is a embarrasing moment when Microsoft apprehending team arrest us for using pirated cd key of windos xp...many internet cafe here in our place get arrested..even the goverment and private offices can't this operation...how about in your place?any reaction please!...
What happened to the MS policy of not collecting personally identifying information when running windoze updates?
how'd they find 'you'?
..i dnt know how they find us..Microsoft team come to our place..they tell us to provide a original installer from microsoft! they want the internet cafe to close first then provide a new cd key!
Help me understand:
You're angry/confused because the owner of a product demanded that you stop using that product illegally?
If, according to you, the "entire country...all cybercafes" are affected, and they all WERE using the software illegally, why should the rest of us care that you can't get on the web at your favorite coffee shop? Buy the darn stuff like the rest of us! And if it's your whole country, the whole country needs to do the same.
I'm sure it was "embarrassing" for you, just as it's embarrassing for a bank robber to get caught with his hand in the vault, or a drunk driver to be pulled over for weaving all over the road. If you don't want to be "embarrassed", don't do anything worthy of embarrassment!
Part of the End User License Agreement with XP (with the activation feature) allows Microsoft to do just that. I guess folks should read their EULA's before they click "I agree" when they install software.
Microsoft is a bunch of greedy jerks; thats why so much pirating occurs...
I would just play the "I didn't know" card and try to get a license...
gUYS !..Understand us ..its is expensive to buy original microsoft cd..here in our country we have a lot of pirated software etc..but its all running and cheaper ..why should i buy a original if that pirated cd is working? hmm better to used ...in our setuation here its better to buy pirated its cheaper..but i shoyld blame my self couse i agree !
I'll switch to Linux or a Mac.
thats true budazz..many internet cafe switching to Linux.mostly our customer here internet cafe dnt know how to used linux..they said its hard to handle mostly elder people, and all the students dnt like linux as of now couse there exercises and assignment theu used microsoft os..
Again, of course pirated software is cheaper. The guy who steals jewelry from people's homes can sell it at whatever discount he likes. How about you stop stealing software. That would be "better".
heheheheh you can't stop stealing ..........
We are free to used any software ..we are not required..hehehe they say Linux is Very safe Operataing System ..yah but its hard to used it ...anyway ..practice...is a must..hehehhee
