When I started in the computer world, I used every pirate, until I realized that it was not the way.I've been tempted to use cracked/pirated software but always had visions of something nasty setting up housekeeping on my machine. So, I do something similar. If I really think I need a piece of software, I cruise the many giveaway sites looking for it. Often, I find something similar, play with it for a while, and discover I didn't need it after all.
There is, i can guarantee you. People who crack software don't always put malware on them.I doubt there is something like a "safe "crack
You mean the private invite-only ones?There is, i can guarantee you. People who crack software don't always put malware on them.
There is a cracker community, where like everywhere, people have a reputation to maintain. In this community, if you start to put malware on your cracks, you won't be accepted for long...
There is also Linux.As the thread has already been taken over: I use MS 365, I just paid £79 for 5 devices, I may or may not renew next year but at the moment need (want) Outlook - If I can't afford the money I could use free alternatives such as Libra office & others, or an older version? Whether 365 it's a scam or not no one is forcing anyone to use it. There are free alternatives. The BMW M3 is probably overpriced but no one has to have one & if you don't have the money get a KIA, walk or use a bus.
I've heard all the arguments for cracked software for over 20 years & if you can't afford it use something you can - 365 is expensive, but parts of it are unmatched, that's why I bought it. The same arguments goes for Apple products, expensive, yes, there are alternates - Using unlicensed software is no different that taking an iPhone at least in UK law. Honestly is pretty difficult to keep up, but you are either honest OR you are not.
You can buy licenses for Windows and Office and other expensive software for so cheap on ebay that even poor "pirates" should be able to afford it. I know this is a grey area of legality and ethics, but it is preferable to pure piracy, and safer, too.
yes and no.Just curious here, is OS Armor redundant when paired with EXE Radar pro?
Most have it pre-installed, few bought Pro version and some got Enterprise or Education one via companies/schools.Good question, I think that in MT almost everyone has bought it or came pre-installed.
There is always someone who does not. but in MT they are the least.
There are some people who never got used to the major changes in v.4, and they prefer the free v.3 beta. If you are on Windows 7, that is an option. If you are on Windows 10, go with v.4.Thanks Umbra! I've been running EXE Radar Pro v.3.1 for a long time, and I'm thinking about upgrading to v.4. Anything I should know regarding v.4?
