Most people use one or the other your home PC for gaming, watching movies, or work, in varying degrees, are familiar with the technical specifications of their “units”. Many of us will be able to name the amount of hard disk space, processor brand, etc. Actually, much attention is paid to users – no one wants to even the computer was turned into a heap of old iron. But along with this, the average user is not paying enough attention to used software – Operating System is placed in the store, and small, along with antivirus software program downloaded from the Internet.
Sometimes it seems that the licensed software, many are simply not heard. No surprise, then, and it will be purely when the computer begins to malfunction, first of all subjected to a thorough examination of all the elements, but on the software component that can deliver no less trouble than a technical failure, do not even think.
What advantages can give the user a license to use the software? Firstly, buying a license program, you remain a law-abiding citizen. And even if today it may seem that it does not matter – in the name of legal entities and companies use pirated software threatens very unpleasant consequences, not to mention the image of the company. Second, purchasing licensed software, you can count on the support and the stable update (as if it is especially important when it comes to, for example).
In addition, there are also a series of second problems. For example, in a pirate Vesey may be missing necessary libraries drivers, but, but, be present spyware and viruses. Of course, if you get pure licensed software, the problems simply cannot be. One cannot deny the fact that any software that has recently released to the market has certain shortcomings. That is why so much attention is paid to the possibility (which only provide software vendors, not the “pirates”) a free upgrade program for a certain period.
However, there is an alternative in the name of “pirated” software – this is software that is developed for the purpose of free distribution. Indeed, using this type of program, you cannot be afraid of trouble with the law or difficulties with the upgrade program. However, often software is not widely spread because it cannot provide the requested user functionality. And if, to find an alternative, for example, a text editor may still be under the power of an ordinary user, then find a worthy replacement programs such as Photoshop and 3D MAX, it will be impossible, especially when it comes to their professional use.
