Too GOOD to be TRUE – Believe it! – Cheap Software – Microsoft – Symantec – Adobe

The old saying is true when it comes to software!  Yes I believe Microsoft charges too much for their software, but the demand is their – just look at there financial report!

The good news if you can’t afford to purchase a Microsoft package, there are lots of other options and a lot of FREE one’s available to you today.  Rather then getting a HOT copy of Office, use open office, Windows LIVE Apps or Google Apps etc.

WHY would you want to do this – Because 35% of the pirated software out there is going to do a lot more to your system and your privacy then you really want.  You see believe it or not the CARTEL you know those people who control the drug trade have found software piracy very lucrative at very little risk, plus the bonus of hacking into your systems for more ways of making money from you the user. 

The other thing to remember is that the software might not be a great deal, you may look at the price and think it’s the real thing just a few $$ cheaper.  Well make sure your buying from a well-known store or WEB as these copies the Cartel are selling look real – right down to boxing and CD.

Buyer be aware….

The New York Times ran a long article around Microsoft and chasing Pirates
