No. Affordable prices don't reduce piracy.
No reason for me to make the switch because there is no discernible gaming difference, which is what I use Windows for.
sure it does. i know i'm going to buy it since its actually AFFORDABLE. if it were outrageously priced I would however consider using.... alternative methods, I know i'm not the only one here
I still feel like Microsoft should pay me for using Windows 8.. If not, i'm not going to touch it ever.
Well that shouldn't be that hard for most since not many people have touch monitors ;-)
Bull's-eye. No touch monitor, no Windows 8.
Actually they do;
As a bit of an ongoing example, Valve stated they were heavily criticized for launching in Russia, a territory where piracy is a massive problem, they have continued to maintain profits in Russia bolstered by their sales.
People who don't want to pay let's say 200$ wouldn't want to pay 100$ either. Even programs that cost 1$ get pirated.
There will always be people who pirate software, but if the price is right people who want to buy something--but have the barrier of cost--will do so rather than pirating it. I'd be more than willing to buy a new version of Windows when available if it wasn't going to cost me $150+ every time. It's money I just don't have. If it was say $50, I could probably swing that.
