Microsoft charges $1 per pirated Windows

Posted on Friday, June 10 2005 @ 19:56:34 CEST by


Microsoft is offering the Indonesian government an amnesty of $1 per pirated version of Windows and the promise to legally buy Microsoft software in the future.
Indonesia's information and communication minister Sofyan Djalil reportedly told the paper: "Microsoft will certify the already-installed illegal software but in the future, all government computers must have legal software produced by the company."

Djalil continued: "Microsoft is being realistic. They can't force developing countries like us to solely use legal software, since we can't afford it. They want us to gradually reduce our use of it."
The Indonesian government promised Microsoft to make all of its computer software legal by 2007. More details at Silicon.com
