    This is why you pirate software. [​IMG]

    They screwed you, now you do the same (well, they don't care, but at least you get free office 2010).

    That's why you pirate the second time. I did a system restore on my computer and Office got borked. I just said fuck it and installed a pirated version. Works like a charm.

    No need to rant. Worse comes to worse you use OpenOffice.

    ^Perfect, brought a tear to my eye. Everything is pirated on my PC, even FireFox. It's "CometBird" from the same guys who made BitComet, the cheating BitTorrent Client with "Super-seed"

    How can Firefox be pirated if it's open source?

    I dislike Microsoft for the main reason that they overcharge for their products. Open source is generally better.

    Also, +1 to the 'you can't pirate FireFox' post; you're just using a FireFox mod.

    If something's got a different name, it's never the pirated version of it, but a clone. (lol, nlintondlol)

    As people have said before, why even buy software? The only thing I ever actually buy is my OS, and even then it's usually pre-installed on the computer or I get it for free thanks to my college. Oh, and some games if I want to play online. Other than that, though, why bother?

    just grab the keygen that came with the enterprise editions

    you can install every office update except the genuine advantage update (which black lists the key)

    Good point. I actually bought Fallout 3 GOTY Edition because Bethesda actually deserved it.

    I've used a windows 7 key, 4 times, and office 2007 key 9 times, you just have to know what to say when you call them.

    My experience with DigitalRiver is that they're somewhat inflexible with their system, but it usually works. Microsoft Steal Deal to get a cheap copy of Windows 7, paid the extra for a DVD and unlimited digital download ticket, then just download and install. The first download didn't work, but the second one did (on the same day I got the DVD too).
