Mine was going to be if I didn't find my upgrade CD and Key. But now that I have found it, I answered no.

Depends on which computer we are talking about and which partitions I booted on.

well, so far this poll is pretty inaccurate

you aren't to judge if they are lying. It may be unusual, but it's completely 'accurate' if they are telling the truth.. just clearing that up :P

Accurate or Inaccurate. Doesn't matter. I doubt people on this board would get humor on a rigged vote poll. I would guess that between pirated and non pirated OS's on this board, it comes pretty close.

i meant, inaccurate compared to real world figures :)

ie i seriously doubt for individual OSes not including businesses (though, globally it would be close), that piracy would be the minority

That's because those of us who use pirated versions probably avoid this thread.
