    If you go buy food do you taste it before you buy it? Of course if you go to a grocery you don't have to try the food before buying because you know from your past experiences what to expect. But if you try something new. Then you might have a chance to wait for a freebie "try this" sample or you would just have to buy stuff blindly?

    I am wondering why gamers think they should have some special rights to try games without paying. Just because it is possible to try a game for free does not mean they have the right to do so? Or does it?

    I haven't used Windows in like 13 years, I run Linux full time (archlinux x86_64), and I do everything on Linux. I'm not going back to Windows, not even for gaming.

    I don't want to pirate "Linux", and I don't want to pirate "open source", that makes no sense, I want to pirate the Steam games that are available for Linux, like HL, Counter Strike, and the single player games that are available on Steam for Linux. Does that makes sense?
    So, in practise you want that gamers and GNU/Linux users around the world pay of the games, so that it is profitable for Steam to publish, advertise, and support them on GNU/Linux platform, so that you could pirate the games?

    You want that people pay so that you can pirate?

    Rather interesting.


    Edit: Not sure if I should pay so that you could pirate because you don't seem to have lack of money.

    You aren't even consistent with yourself.

    No, it doesn't. But it seems that you don't care anyways. You are not anti-DRM or pro open source, you just are "I want to get that for free, give me, give me, give me!!!!!!!"

    a little rhetoric knowledge for the people:
    these words are synonyms:

    a second example these words are also synonyms:
    Alliance (Positive) Interest group (neutral) conspiracy (negative)
    and its always the same: one side of the interest group call the other side: terrorist and they are always a part of a conspiracy
    and these terrorists always call there allies a part of a Alliance and they think always they are freedom fighters.
    this means if someone calls you a terrorist he is just a part of the other side means he is a part of the conspiracy the enemy of your Alliance and the truth is he is a terrorist against your freedom fighting.
    Exactly.

    I haven't used Windows in like 12 years, I run Linux full time (archlinux).
    i have THE solution for you use a VM like virtual-box to emulate linux on windows then you never need to reboot.

    Stop with this "third-world" bullshit.

    I live in Brasil. Steam has almost every payment methods(16) avaiable in my country and currency conversion in always below current rate.

    For the price of a single movie ticket I can get Trine 2, Half-file, Bastion and World of Goo (All of which I highly recommend).
    I have bought 20 games for less than a copy MW3.

    If you pirate everything, why not go that extra single step and pirate your OS as well.

    Why pirate games on linux only because you don't want pirate windows? this makes no sense!

    If you want play pirated games fine! I fight for your freedom to do so but then please also pirate windows to!

    We really have better things to do than write about pirate windows or not to play pirate games.

    The "Real" Linux users try to use there computers seriously and want play games and if they want pirating anything they don't even need Linux because its within the LAW to "Pirate" Linux.

    Whats next? Valve makes the games opensource and you still try to pirate it? LOL

    "Linux Users can't be trusted to behave" in general if you are an anarchist or anarcho-capitalist and the most linux developers and Linux users are something in this direction then your behaviour is by definition bad because our stupid society think anarchists are anomalists running in black on the streets and destroy all they can like rabies dogs...

    the stupid society do not even know the difference between a anomalist and a anarchist.

    But one is for sure the stupid society think that American-Liberalism is "GOOD" bit the difference between Liberalism and Anarchism is very very very small.

    In fact they share all main keywords: "Freedom, self-determination, equality, self-realization of the individual and collective self-government."

    In fact the word libertarian is a synonym to anarchist


    But why is anarchism evil and Liberalism is good?

    the answer is simple: the only difference between these 2 lines is the word "social"

    Anarchism=Social=Evil
    Liberalism=Egoism=Good

    Thats the KEY! ..

    the Blood-line-Money-Aristocracy hate all what is Social because this means there egoism is "Evil" by definition

    and only if the "Evil" is by definition "Good" they are on the good side.

    because of this:

    Blood-line-Money-Aristocracy=Liberalism

    Anarchism=for the poor.

    because of this the result is: "Linux Users can't be trusted to behave"
