It is rather hard nowadays to find Amiga piracy.|
Is it really dead, or just deep underground?
Have anti-piracy messages in AmiGIFT worked? :)
If anyone remembers how widespread Amiga piracy was in the bad old days, today's Amiga pirating activities are by comparison weak and ineffectual IMHO..

|Why do you beleive that an Win/Mac user will switch to|
AmigaOS if he can't find commercial stuff for free as it
happens in its current market?
To be interesting for people different than fans, Amiga
should offer the same things that other platforms give,
including piracy. There is NO REASON for an average user
to buy an Amiga program when he can either: a) get a
free program on Win/Mac/Linux or b) illegally download a
Piracy as well is the force of Win/Mac market. A platform
without it is not a platform for the average 'joe user'.
And don't forget that very few Amiga sites allows to buy
prgrams online, so even who will to pay will be forced to
mail order stuff. So?
- no piracy
- no online buying
- few freware stuff, lot of shareware for things that other
systems give for free or even included in the OS.
Are you sure this is good for Amiga? ;-)
