Software piracy,,,,IT Hustlers

Where you are viewing this, weather in Cybercafes or at home or work area, computer application installed in that machine, 90% is pirated. The Music you are listening to, in your car, as you read this, well, all of them probably most of them you downloaded from a pirated site or got it from a friend who got from a pirate. Question is, how long should this continue, Who is to Blame..

Internet has become the mother of everything where by hackers and IT Hustles have found a sweet home to carry their activites, and this are the culprits,

But what trigers this, i say Clients,,Most of our computer clients do not want to spend heavy on buying softwares for their companies or individual use,reason atiii they are expensive, i ask them why don't they go Linux...Ubuntu..The Open Source Softwares, they pretty work the same, only interest to it its what is stop the crap of OOOOOO Microsoft is Expensive, Software Companies are Expensive. Here is the truth, when you get not geniune softwares that's when shit happens, first, your computer and systems will be failing periodically, second you will not be knowing this but the maintenance cost in long term is expensive...with time you will be needing the IT Hustles to come and repair it, reinstall them, knowingly or accept again the pirated software to be installed...and if the Hustler is not doing it professional, data loss occurs and you wonder what went wrong, you wonder you bought a new HP Laptop and after a year BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH occurs, or..i like this one..suddenly your computer goes into unclean shutdowns and on boot up, start up errors and system failure messages pops up the screen and you start experiencing program failures.

My Advice, give to Ceasar what belongs to Ceasar and hustlers what belong to doing this you will help the IT GUY to become innovative and develop softwares to which he will get well paid and you will be relaxing and enjoying working on you machines without getting software or systems headaches

Quote of the Day:

"It's easier for our software to compete with Linux when there's piracy than when there's not.
" Bill Gates

Enjoy your friday and story ya HAPA KULE....WACHAAAA
