What do the winrar people think I am rich or something?
This is going to go back and forth forever.
It's going to go on about standards of living, you having a modern pc and internet and all that jazz.
Hell i think everything should be free even hardware at some point when we get to the kind of technology that will make it possible if the powers that be allow it.
Problem being were not at that point. I guess all software developers should go into making drivers? Software has been a bit stagnant for a while in terms of anything new and exciting this is probably why no one wants to pay for it. Even the open source developers gotta make there meat and potatoes somewhere.
It can certainly add up but it's not like your buying adobe photoshop or microsoft office where it's hundreds of dollars your buying a one time $30 dollars. If you can't actually afford that you would have a real problem.
No need to make up reasons.... just YARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHH.
