I had thought that it would not be possible to pirate Vista but I guess I was wrong as expected. I just saw a copy of Vista ultimate on the stands at Andheri for 150 INR and a Norton antivirus 2007 for 50 INR
Just imagine, a copy of Norton 2007 for 2000 INR + Windows Vista starting at 22,000 INR and Office at 6000 INR (from www.pcworld.in) and that's not the end of it. So software would cost us more than 30,000 INR if there was no piracy.
And my computer cost me only 26,000 INR last year. The OS cost me 10 INR (cost of a CD) which was all I needed for my Debian Netinst ;-)
