Do you Pirate some of it that is a bit too much for your wallet?
Maybe make this into a poll if you're really interested.
FWIW, I'd answer a conclusive no. Just think about the impacts...
Nah, we don't talk bout that stuff, playah.
Proudly - no.
If you don't want to pay for it, don't use it.
I'll be the first to admit that I do pirate software. Most Mac software cost $$ anyway. I'm saving up though to buy ShapeShifter as its too good.
I only use OSS, except for some OSes. I don't do anything with my computers that requires anything like Final Cut or Photoshop.
Most cars cost money too, do you steal yours?
adamb100, meet VersionTracker. VersionTracker, meet adamb100.
There are lots of lovely free apps for OSX.

You're not getting an invitation to my house.
Hey, there's a fine line between immoral and sicko.
I dont pirate all of it. I am trying to buy ShapeShifter. When I shifted to Mac I was suprised how much software is paid.
Yep. All the time. Most of my apps are pirated. As a student I simply cant afford to buy everything I want to use, but will try and support whatever I can, especially the small indies; namely Hog Bay Notebook/Mori, Synergy etc. I run bootleg MS Office, Photoshop etc.
Stealing a car is different from copying software - if you steal a car, the previous owner loses the car. If you copy some software, the original still exists and still works.
All Steve has to do is release a smartphone next week and the puppies will be fine. The way I see it Steve's the one responsible for their deaths if he doesn't pony-up with a smartpone.
That's what my wife does, pretty much. I only wish there were a way to pirate college textbooks :-(
Ahh, but justification is not the first step to redemption.
I can't lie. I've had on my computer every version of Photoshop since 5.0. I didn't buy any of them. I got 5.0 from work (bosses permission, but probably still against EULA, I dunno I read those things with my scroll wheel anyway.), and the rest...
OK what if I take a photo of your car blow it up life-size and stick it to the side of my pinto, then drive around town pulling all the women you could've had?
You still worked hard to afford the car and I did nothing but copy it.
I think you'll find that's a water-tight argument.
That depends on how nicely you sealed the photo on your car.
