DarQ: I have legal copies of Win95, Win95 OSR2.1, Win98, Win98SE, WinME, WinXP Pro UK (3x). Currently only use the latter 3. Scary huh? Smile

I think only people behind bigweb 'voted' on the poll though, it looks rigged Wink

DarQ, you know me, I have legal:
MS-DOS6.20
Windows 3.11
Windows NT/2000/XP (pro and home)
Windows 95/98/ME
Windows Longhorn beta
and a whole lot more...

I guess it's an advantage when you're a student at an University where they have useful contracts with Microsoft, i.e. all computer science students can legally download Microsoft products (except for MSoffice though, strange :|). Yeah, that rocks Wink

snout: I was one of the 2% saying 'I have illegal warez on my PC' Tongue

Yeah, it's the Office crap Wink

DarQ, let me help you out of your dreamstate: OpenOffice is *SLOW*. *DAMN SLOW*. I tried it one time, because I really had it with MSOffice, but man... Loading a .doc or a .ppt in open office is a hell. FYI: I've got a Intel Pentium III 600MHz w/ 256MB PC133 RAM. That's ideal for a workstation (and it even runs NLMSX fluently! Big smile).

Yeah, I can't use openMSX or blueMSX there Wink NLMSX is good enough for me.

I'd like to know whats Mr. Peter R. de Vries suggests about the "Media Canon" actually applying in Spain:

ALL media storage like CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc... have a "tax" due to "they should be used to copy music and illegal software". This means, if I buy some CD to backup my pictures from my digital camera, I'm paying a plus tax for others that are using CD to record illegal software or music.

Amazing Big smile

Oh... and this could be worse: the "SGAE" (the private organism that "defends" the copyrights of musicians and software development in Spain) are trying to add a tax to Hard Drives and so on....... XDDDD

incredible.

in the Netherlands there's a tax on CD-R, CD-RW and DVD-Rs too. But there even was a similiar tax on cassettes in the old days. Still is, probably. Wink

Note that that student-license is AFAIK only legal as long as you are a student Wink
Once you finish your study, you are not allowed anymore of using those products Wink

As far as the spreading of Cracks and Serial numbers being illegal according to the B.I.G. site (and I agree with you Grauw on the 'design'-issue): AFAIK crack programs itself are legal.. and a serial number is just a piece of text... hardly can call it illegal... the use of them though, to obtain a license for a program which you didn't pay the license fee for, is illegal..

And I believe there were even plans on putting such taxes on copy-paper. Since quite some companies use copy-paper to copy excerpts from official documents/magazines.
