I went food shopping this morning, and nobody seemed to have a problem with an orderly queue to get in, or with slow people who browse the shelves instead of taking a shopping list. (Though one lady who decided that the "direction arrows" in no way applied to her wasn't popular)
And the lack of queues to pay and leave was good.
In some ways, it's better - it slows down the whole "experience" and makes it a lot more relaxing. Odd but true.

I needed a license for my windows 10 machine and during activation it took me to microsoft's official site.
Price : $339 .
I googled a bit and there are copies available for lot less. Finally I found one on ebay for $8. Yes that is saving of $331 and the key worked perfectly. I had a voucher for $5 so ultimately it costed me $3. That is the price I am happy to pay.
Very happy to save few $$ in this time of no job.

Watch out with those mega cheap licenses. It is a gray zone.
Those usually are not normal licenses, they are a re-sell of unused corporate licenses. And it is not clear yet, if legal or if there will be consequences.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
