Why I've Become A Software Pirate
from the not-a-very-good-rationale dept
Not sure I buy the reasoning, but a so-called "internet guru" is explaining that she has no problems pirating software because it's so buggy. She rationalizes the decision by saying that she shouldn't be forced to pay for what clearly should be alpha or beta level software - where our "testing" and discovery of security holes is a paid-for privilege that creates the next generation of software that (yup) we're expected to buy again. Of course, if she finds the software so buggy, why is she using it in the first place?
