When I need any software product, I look for it here. Even if they don't have it yet, I ask customer support to look for the software copy for me, and they always find one. It's great to have such a website at hand, when you need many expensive programs.
I wanted to upgrade my Adobe Premier software, but Adobe didn't offer such service. Fortunately on this website I was able to do it, thank you!
Proprietary software is damn expensive these days, so I've switched to OEM versions, and I'm totally satisfied with how it goes for me. That's really a great solution for everyone who doesn't want to pay extra.
