Comment: Re:Crack vs. Foss (Score 2, Interesting) 241

by zz99 (#25100459) Attached to: How Asus Recovery Disks Ended Up Carrying Software Cracks
ASUS has a lot of its workforce in mainland China, where most of the installed software, both personal and on company computers, is pirated. Officially the government is against piracy, and at regular intervals raids are conducted in visual places, but at the whole I don't think they will shed any tears if MS looses licensing revenues. The better the anti piracy control is the more people will use FOSS. Because piracy disrupts the free market. If you can get something worth $200 for free, why choose something truly free (worth $0)?
