    That's a great list, although I am surprised the original listing didn't show Gnu/Linux or BSD as alternatives to Windows, which is something I am sure gets pirated a lot as well.

    He's put down JEdit which made me smile. He's gonna piss his pants if he ever takes a look at Eclipse. Does that do desktop Java too ? (I've only used it for J2ME and it was setup by someone else)

    However it's a good list.

    Yeah the list is for thinks you could use as an easy alternative. Switching Win->Any other OS will require a fair amount of effort to learn the new OS, even forgetting the pain of installing it.

    I can use the GIMP and arrive at the same results as I would with Photoshop.

    I can't play a knockoff and get the same experience as playing the original game, regardless of price.
