Stealing from Apple as well, yeah, I think they do.

yeah..nothing new. btw i think those files in question where not made by MS themselves but by a third party working for MS. however its silly that MS never bothered to check.

What is your real problem? Let me know it first?

I wouldnt expect I need to check if the 3rd party company I subcontract out to happens to use legit software or not.. its a given.

You have a website built for you in flash, do you ask the people who created it "BTW - Did you legally purchase your version of Flash, or was that grabbed from some warez website?"

I certainly wouldnt ;)
