Go ahead and pirate Windows, you'll end up buying it anyway

Microsoft is against piracy, right? Since the release of the Windows Genuine Advantage software, Microsoft has been really cracking down on software piracy.

The strange thing is, according to Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes, if you're going to pirate someone's products, pirate theirs. That has got to be the strangest thing I've ever heard. Yes, I understand the point behind it. If you pirate something, chances are you'll come to love it, get attached, and eventually purchase the product.

So, the next time Microsoft comes knocking on your door for piracy, just tell them that you're just becoming attached to the software. You'll probably buy it some day. Probably.
