Crack Morals

| | Comments (0)

Is it ever ok to use a crack to unlock a piece of software? There is this great utility I used in the past called DeskBar. DeskBar made it to about v4.01 before development stopped and that was about 2 years ago or something. The product website is gone. The author's email address bounces. I can't find any reference to him or any projects by him anywhere anymore. Through some intricate Google work I found an old cached copy from some asian FTP server, but of course it is a crippled version. So what does one do? Can't register it here or here or here. Shouldn't crack it. Just let it slide and try to use an inferior app? An interesting dilemma.
