Not really. You only buy a license to the software. Which you dont even own technically. M$ still owns it. We basically rent it. For a high price. So why pay for another serial when you already have one? Gonna pay another $100 for a plastic CD that cost then $2 to make? Just so they can get another $90 profit out of it?
Sorry my ethics is just fine. I use my $$ to take care of my daughter not line Gates and Ballmers pockets. They have enough money already. They have more than they can use to cover 7 lifetimes. Are they gonna help me out when i need it? No so why should i help them.
I have a serial so i just get my disc from somewhere else. They ALL do the same thing. Doesnt matter as long as it is Home for home and Pro for Pro. Some have some extras added like security updates while others dont.
Till i see Ballmer and Gates come to my neighborhood and buy stuff for our local shops and help support my family. I will do what i have to. If i have to pirate a disc and use a legit serial. So be it.
