Consider This, Prices Have To Be Increased Becoz Many People Are Using Pirate Software
If you think your going to lower the price by buying it then your wrong...

Besides it's shenanigans, they make most profit from companys who buy lots of them.

Just like Photoshop, almost no one buys it, except for company's.

Also Windows (95 and up) never was cheap, even when it didn't got copied.

It's like this, most company's are ripping you off, Microsoft could make windows much cheaper, but hey they want to make themselfs richer and richer, and that while lots of people already use copied versions, they are asking way to much.

pfffft....i don't tink that their prices r rong, since i've started 2 learn programation, now i know how much trouble is 2 make a OS i don't tink that the effort of teams with more then 100 persons and 2 years of hard work should be cheap -.-

oh and btw do you really tink that the get their profits from us? home users :eek: the big moneys is on the companies that they provide with services i would say we r like 10% if that much of their profit

EDIT: gohan try this as ur a porn lover u gonna like this syte ;)

Ofcourse they are not ripping us off, the small fact that Bill Gates is the richest guy in the world because of MS is a minor detail eh?

He could easily drop the price of his products and still make a lot of profit.

He Is In This Business For A Profit.

How Many People Bought MS Products?

We Do Not Know How Much He Pays His Programmers, His Artists Or His GUI Developers So We Cannot Say If He's Ripping Us Off.

The Fact That He Is The Richest Man In The World Shows He Is A Good Business Man, Or His Products Are The Best On The Market.

It depends what you call a good business man, yeah he has the best products on the market, but then again there is no real other products opposing his, except for linux and all, but that's hardly a problem for MS.

And really, if you honestly believe they couldn't drop the price and still make lots of profit, then you need to get your head checked.

The reason why he asks a lot, is because you can't buy similiar stuff anywhere else anyway.

What He Has Yes

The Company Is A Seperate Body, He's Just The CeO. He Never Even Created Microsoft, And He Does Not Own It. He Created Windows And Sold It To Microsoft

Thus = Richest Man In The World

Noticed Another Thing Regarding Your Point

You Said They Could Lower The Price And Still Be In Profit.

They Have To Pay Wages, Advertising, Packing, Mass Production And Distribution.

And TBH You Can't Argue With

But I Can't See Why They Should

They Can't Overcharge You Because Its Against The Law, They Are Allowed To Make So Much Profit. The RRP Is Based On Man Hours, Materials, Any Other Costs + Profit
