Quote: "...I have never paid for a piece of PC software.."
Sorry, but I simply don't believe this....every MS-DOS or Windows computer you ever bought meant that a portion of the purchase price went to Redmond, Washington, USA to pay for software.
Every Apple computer you ever bought included software costs.
......or have you only ever bought "barebones" boxes with no software at all? If this is the case, I applaud your devotion!
