I've got 80% of Adobe creative sweet 2.
just buy it
yea just a sec, let me go withdraw 600bucks from my bank account real fast. that's a wild stab in the dark on the price, but I figured fair. Not gonna pay that much money for something I use to edit small photos and do a little website work for no profit
So why not use legal version of software to do those things instead of pirating other software?
Try to justify it anyway you want. The bottom line is you just stole ~600 dollars from Adobe. You wouldnt steal a copy of the Abode Sweet from Best Buy would you?
i generate enough money for apple, in the past two years, ive convince over 20 people to purchase apple products, as well as get a job for my friends at apple, so they have gotten plenty of money with my help
i dont think an OS burn will hurt them that much
cant afford it? dont use it. there are plenty of free programs that "edit small photos and do a little website work"
There aren't free programs that do what I need to do. One thing I've noticed is piracy is almost non-existant in the mac world, and when brought up everyone likes to get on their soap box. And by the way I'm not making excuses, I took 600$ from adobe. I've done it with other companies and I'll continue to do it.
this program works just fine.
piracy is extremely easy to do on macs. with www.acquisitionx.com you can download the .dmg files for pretty much any program you want complete with serial and the whole 9.
however, if you can afford it, it is always better to buy the software. the reason keeping me from bootlegging is that i like to have support when i need it.
I've never been able to figure Apple pirates out:
You can afford a Dual G5 and 20+" screen but not the software?
I could barely afford my 12 inch ibook
I buy my software from smaller things (20-120) but bigger software that I want functionality from, I don't.
Maybe not Apple, but you could get fired and your company sued for doing that shit at work.
i can get creative suite for like 249 cdn.
that probably wasn't the best post to create...
