In many cases, pirated software is hacked to run, and won't work correctly if you buy a license and attempt to apply it to the hacked version. AntiWPA doesn't make a genuine operating system out of a pirated one - it just strips out the activation code  - which is a violation of the DCMA laws. In my experience, it's best to wipe the drive and reinstall fresh with a clean copy of the properly-licensed software.

How important is your time? Pirated software, even if you could "convert" it to being "genuine", could also contain unknown/unexpected code that was added by a 3rd party. The last thing you want to do is infect your office with some spyware/malware because you were too cheap to buy legitimate operating system software. And you'll spend far more time troubleshooting issues if your software came from an unknown source like a torrent.

If you run into an issue with not being able to buy the software you need - let's say you have a legacy app that requires being run from Windows XP - you could pick up the license from a third party on ebay and just go ahead and use your pirated copy to get things up and running. How could you be breaking the law if you (eventually) buy a license?

The ones who compete in the finals are almost always talking smack and screaming, even if it is Polish jibberish. Screaming or grunting has actually been proven to give extra bursts of adrenaline as it pushes your body into fight or flight mode, so there is a bit of method to this madness. Thanks.

Hi pizda,

Do yourself a favor and just buy a copy of Windows. It's much easier and will save you the worries about running hacked software. You can snag a copy of Windows 7 right from Microsoft's site here:

Buy a key for under $30 for Windows 7 SP1! Search for Windows keys.  Other versions of windows are also available.  Keys are valid and come with a link to download the operating system you purchased.

No pricing yet but we've got time. The final version isn't due until late 2015.
My first experience with Windows 8 inspired bafflement and frustration. But I walked away from my first few minutes with Windows 10 with a sense of jealousy. It looks like a significant improvement, and I want it on my PC right now.
Microsoft gave the first look at its Windows 10 operating system on Tuesday, a major release that will span all hardware from PCs to phones and try to address the ills that have dogged Windows 8.
Humbled by businesses' dislike for Windows 8, Microsoft has issued a mea culpa, offered the world a first peek at Windows 10 and pledged that the new OS will delight IT executives. But the true test of whether Microsoft can move past its Windows 8 mistakes will come when Windows 10 is commercially released at some point next summer.
Microsoft's major update to its operating system, called Windows 10 and unveiled Tuesday, has been built to blend old and new in a way that will be familiar to Windows 7 users while also retaining much of its more modern tile interface.
Aware that the "if you build it, they will come" principle doesn't always apply to newly deployed IT systems, Microsoft has developed a website to help companies promote Office 365 usage among employees.
After spending the past two years in damage control mode over Windows 8, Microsoft will officially begin a new era for its OS on Tuesday, when it's expected to unveil a preview of Windows' next major version during an event focused on enterprise customers.
Microsoft, which recently announced the consolidation of several of its conferences, is now going in the opposite direction and resurrecting WinHEC, which was last held in 2008.
The 'Shellshock' Bash shell bug is a big deal, but it's relatively easy to keep your home PC safe.
Yes, recent versions of Mac OS X are vulnerable to the critical "Shellshock" Bash bug revealed earlier this week, including OS X Mavericks--but don't sweat it unless you're doing ninja-level Unix tricks with shell commands already.
