+1 for me.

I never did any games, only Application software.
The more complex the better. No interest in fame/fortune.

I still think MakeCD was one of the hardest...

Any pirated software that I received, that I later ended up using regularly, I always bought it as a rule. Something I still do today in fact.
If a software author can impress me, it only seems fair they should be rewarded wherever possible.


In a related vein.
In many cases, cracking has preserved many games for posterity, which would otherwise have disappeared when their copy-protected media failed.
