  3. Lets see now. The Russian fellow was in a position of some authority and he
    didn't know that he was doing wrong by installing programs all over the
    place - without paying for them.

    Somehow I can bring myself to feel sorry for the predicament he got himself
    into.

    Not even if you take into account that he was probably only doing it because
    he didn't have enough funding to provide the equipment he needed to provide
    an education to the children under his care...?

  9. Stealing is ok then? Just a short time ago people got excellent
    educations without the help of computers.

    Microsoft already gives students, teachers and educational
    institutions very special deals. Maybe if the guy wrote to Microsoft
    and asked for help, he might have even gotten some free computers.

    Maybe he thought it was fair use like photocopying books and magazines
    which is legal if you do it for your class.

  14. At 62 years old - I don't think so. And if I did, and got caught, I would
    expect the consequences that I received.

    Every effect has a cause. Effect - Go to jail. Cause - caught stealing.
    Seems equitable to me.

    every cause has an effect also though ... remember....

    The world needs to be free, information needs to be free.....
    only then we will reach a higher level of understanding...

    ....of course the 'Siberian prison' may in reality be an elite FSB
    linux-based training camp, which would change things slightly ;-)

    Not really a very sensible point. There are very few jobs these days where
    having at least basic computer skills is not helpful if not essential.

    No, I'm not saying stealing is Ok...
    Just saying ripping off a few copies of Windows (or whatever) to help
    educate children is hardly in the same league as commercial or corporate
    pirating. I imagine the guy was just trying to provide a better education
    for his pupils under very limited funding, I hardly think it is crime worth
    of being sent to prison for. Can you honestly say you think he should??

    Do MS education deals extend to Russia anyway?

    Please provide proof to back up your assertion. Where is it illegal in
    Russia to have a contract dispute with MS?
