Back in 2004, I'd written about software piracy in Pakistan, and the difficulty of buying a original copy of windows here.
Well, four and a half years later, I went back out looking for a original copy of Windows XP 64 bit, and found out from Microsoft Pakistan that they don't sell XP anymore in Pakistan. Than I checked with Galaxy, who used to have it once upon a time - but they only had Vista now.
Somethings never change, it seems. You just can't buy software here, even if you try. So I headed over to the Piratebay and "bought a copy" from there instead.
[Please don't like to pirated software here.]
I do own more copies of Windows XP licenses than I actually have running on my PC's, but ironically all the installed copies are pirated, even on a laptop with the sticker stuck to the button - as it's so much more easier to install the new pirated versions which have a lot of stuff integrated into them.
I myself have switched over to Ubuntu, the XP was for someone else.
