Default Idiots!

Complete morons if you own a business then everything you sell should be LEGIT. Me i'd never sell a priated verison of a software in my business. Because it wouldn't be worth the risk.

When I went down to Mexico, they have tables set up outside of shops and on the sidewalk where they sell pirated versions of EVERYTHING you can think of. Microsoft XP, ps2 games, xbox games, gamecube games, movies, music, etc.

Thats in Mexico, not America theres a huge difference. And Microsoft windows for 20 bucks in America is a priated edition 9/10 and as a profoffisional business standpoint of a view its a idiotic move.

Yeah, I agree. If you own a business and you want it to be reputable you shouldn't sell pirated stuff.

Buisnesses should not be selling pirated copies of XP.

Their is a difference between a single person aqquiring a version of XP and a buisness selling a stolen item.

That I wouldn't complain about. HOWEVER THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

I'd never ever sell a customer a priated verison of XP or any software for that matter. Its a ethical view point on a business level.
