Games are a tiny percentage of the software base ?
I donīt think so. From what I seem, the usual home user will have lots of PIRATED apps on his computer, while he has a bigger chance of buying a game (Because itīs cheaper, you see).
Yeah, the companies NEED to buy original software, but I NEVER saw a home user buying windows or corel draw. They will pirate it.
HECK, even here in the university where I work (I am here now), we have a CRACKED version of Delphi and MathCAD in the computers.
Of course, here is Brazil, maybe in other countries we see different things..
