Breaking the law

Yesterday I started installing Windows 98 on my computer WITHOUT A LICENCE!!!

I know that it is illegal, but I have some reasons for doing it. First of all I think that I will only use Windows 98 temporary, and will be able to switch to Linux or FreeBSD soon.

Secondly, Windows 98 is a product that is not supported anymore by Microsoft, and I doubt if I still can buy a licence. But even if I could, I wouldn’t buy it.

So today I entered the world of serialz, my god how I hate this! Especially since I was doing it on my old laptop which was slowing down with each pop-up showing.

Now that I almost finished installing the operating system, it is time to start thinking about the applications I need. I have made this small list:

  • Microsoft Office 97
    Also highly illegal, but I think my computer is just too slow for OpenOffice;
  • WS_FTP Pro
    to copy and synchronise files for my websites;
  • HTML-kit
    to edit my web sites;
  • TopStyle Pro
    the easiest way to edit CSS files;
  • Mozilla or Phoenix
    Everything is better than IE, but I am not sure whether my system is fast enough to support Moz;
  • ArgoSoft mail server
    Since my ISP doesn’t allow me to send mail from my @jeroensangers.com or @fimcap.org e-mail addresses.
