    I'm not so good with this business and money's and things.
    Would never work, people tend to want stuff for nothing. It's all Shawn Fanning's fault

    According to statistics from the Business Software Alliance (BSA), 41
    percent of all software installed on PCs worldwide in 2008 was pirated.
    The resulting financial losses were estimated to be US $53 billion. The
    level of piracy around the world increased slightly from 38 percent in
    2007 to the current figure for 2008 of 41 percent. BSA CEO and
    president Robert Holleyman said that while the percentage of pirated
    software is lower in the US than anywhere in the world, it is still a
    significant problem because more software is sold in the US than
    anywhere else, which means that "the US has the highest single dollar
    loss."

    I guess I'll finally have to buy that copy of Photochop
    The actual question there is how many business know they're actually using pirated software, and are using it intentionally?

    But you're still a douche-bag for having the idea in the first place.

    started a topic So there I was the other day

    So there I was the other day

    after posting a thread about the new fedora 11 release coming out and watching a bunch of "lol internet" persons posting about how they would just warez windows 7 and I got to thinking to myself.

    self, 'I wonder what would happen if someone packaged a bot or root kit infested version of windows 7 or the big windows server builds (2003,2008 etc) and placed them on the real popular torrent sites?'

    I was going to blog about that notion here but I also thought I didn't want to give out any malicious ideas, you know since it may be tracked back to me somehow (paranoia++)

    and then not two days later I see this...

    I guess I wasn't the only one with that idea :-)
