Pirated software is a taboo subject. Please ask Microsoft and Apple directly for what they think about it.

Again, sorry but it's the forum policy to not discussed pirated items.

There are alternatives to MS Office.

Open Office, Neo Office, iWork, to name a few. The first two are free and are easily downloaded and installed. Try them out and if you don't like them, come back and we'll talk
