It really depends on the software. For instance, I have NEVER Pirated a Blizzard game. Never will either. Their games are just too high quality and I want them to continue making them.

Microsoft products, on the other hand....

Whenever you buy a copy of say, Quake III: Arena or RtCW, you are generally supporting id Software to deliver more quality titles such as the above, in the future, just to use as an example. In the end however, they really are getting nothing, after all the money spent on ads, licensing game engines, PR team, etc. As long as it's something of high caliber, then of course I would buy them. ;) More of a fickle opinion with me here.

M$ however, is self explanatory, as noted by other members. :p
