"sharing of critical information" for illegal copies of Windows?
Strange euphemism.

The question is not what I consider criminal, but what the laws
consider criminal.  That is what will get your computers confiscated
and you jailed or fined.

To obey the laws?  Actually, that attitude _is_ taught in school.

News flash: you could just use Linux and run a lot of free and open
software on it, without breaking any laws, licences and Eulas.  Which
is what I do, and have done for quite a long time.

Linux broke out of the "80x25 ghetto buffer" some 12 years ago, when
the first X11 servers started running on it.
