Comment Re:Thanks Adobe! (Score 1) 159

The situation here in Brazil is worse. I bet 95% of running Adobe Software is obtained and installed through illegal or questionable means. The prices here for car, electronics and software goods are light years ahead the ones practiced over many other countries, including Australia. A Galaxy S3 phone, for example, is sold here for approximately $1000,00, even though it`s components are made in China and its final assembling is done here. What the government does? Absolutely nothing! It`s not free market, it really is a secret and mutually collaborative game played only by industries and governments. People are marginalized on this process and have no voice at all to change this situation. Glad to see the australian government taking the opportunity to speak in favour of its citizens. Hope the same some day will happen here, in Brazil.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
