LOL, I don't think it will make any difference to Microsoft here, well in financial terms anyway.

There are legit boxed versions of Windows 7 gathering dust in the "informatica" stores but pirated copies cost $5. The whole university where my wife works runs on pirated Vista.

I tried to buy an English language version of W7 instead of having to botch this with an Ultimate translation pack and couldn't get one, even in Rio. The risk of having one sent from overseas is too great considering the amount of thievery within the mail service so I gave up.
