Hi mario, Well i have genuine windows vists home premium. It came with my laptop but before this laptop i never brought original ones and always used pirated windows and even today in my other laptop it is still a pirated Windows XP premium. In Delhi all the softwares you can get pirated very easily and when ever you buy a computer the vendor would put pirated softwares what ever you want for free be it windows, ms office , photshop or any other software you want.

Yup right said sweetie, i live in delhi and i know all about this.You can get any software at cheap rate(obviously pirated one) in Nehru Place.Once i bought a multi-software DVD from Nehru place for Rs.70 and a copy of Windows XP professional from Palika Bazaar(CP) for Rs.50.

Hi mariovalentino69 I have original Windows Vista Premium when I bought my Acer Aspire but I switched to Xp since I don't like using Vista. My two other desktop PC are all unlicense; the OS and all application software. I think it depends on the territory license software is required. So far, here in our place fake copy is not that strict so people can just used and load any unlisence software to their PCs.

Hi mario, no I have never used fake software of any kind but I'm pretty sure that this would pose a problem when it came to updates and things like that. I guess the best course of action is to always go for genuine software programs, this ensures that you are protected from viruses and corrupted programs and so forth. Andrew

All the softwares I am using are pirate,except free software like FireFox.You can get all the softwares you want from Internet free.And the original softwares are too expensive for me,a student.I wish one day,Linux could be easy-to-use like window,then I don't have to use pirate OSs and softwares
