Microsoft’s Longhorn now selling illegally in Bangkok

Microsoft's Longhorn now selling illegally in Bangkok - Philippine Daily Inquirer, August 26, 2004
...The neatly packaged “pirated” version of Longhorn is being sold with other operating systems and software at Patnip Plaza, located just across the Pratunam district, a haven for bargain shoppers.
Browsing through the collection of pirated software being sold at an average of 100 baht a piece, one could also find Microsoft’s Windows XP with SP2 package all in one CD. A Sun Microsystems Solaris 9.0 version was also available for the same price.
Software piracy thrives at Patnip Plaza, which ironically also sells legitimate software. One may even be surprised to see a store selling legitimate software beside another store hawking pirated software.
