For many years now I have bought Microsoft products, I can see why they have a problem with piracy, perhaps if the did not rip people off more people would buy the software legally. I am not going to buy Vista. When my PC falls over I am going to join the growing number of people using linux. I currently have both XP and linux on my system.
If I could us apples operating system I would, and totally drop microsoft
The question here is cost and you would be right Vista is a rip off in terms of price. I think the other posters will confirm though that ebay purchasing via the States is one way of getting around this.
