    Make no doubt about it. I use to steal software on a regular basis. Programs like WinZip, Macromedia Homesite, Paint Shop Pro. I stole them all years ago. But I grew a conscience. And I can proudly say I have paid for each and everyone of them and replaced others with open source programs.

    I only buy programs that I can't do with out and are an incredible resource to have. And that is after I haven't found an open source equivalent.

    I have used all the excuses I see you guys using, to justify what you do as being ok. But the bottom line is, what you're doing is wrong. And my hope is that, with the push of open source products, you will eventually all grow a conscience and stop stealing software and use a free alternative. There is really no excuse to steal.

    I don't use P2P programs. Haven't had the need to use them.

    Don't kill the messenger for the message. P2P networks are very valid distribution channels.

    You remember ftp/http site congestion when a New Linux Version or the Grand Theft Trailer came out ?

    Without something like Bittorrent to pick up slack, the stuff would not have spread as fast.

    I watch a lot of Revision3 shows, like Ctrl-Alt-Chicken. Without Bittorent downloading a 400 MB Vid File would be an excersise in frustration.
    I leave them going, I seed. I can usually flood my DSL pipe with data. Everyone wins.
