When I was young, I pirated some games, movies and apps (like everyone I guess) but as soon as I got an IT job (early 200X), I began to buy or rent them.
I prefer to buy than rent and I understand the last option is good to keep projects alive.
I don't recall the first time I tried WinRAR since the first version was released 27 years ago.
I never thought I would buy this product one day but if I divide the price by the number of years I use WinRAR, it's pretty cheap and I should have bought this one early. So I bought it!
Yes, 7-Zip is free and it works well. I use both but I like WinRAR more.
Overtime, I also backed some projects through crowdfunding, donation or merchandise. I believe that if you like or use the product, it's a good way to improve this one indirectly.

Here is a WinRar memes compilation that I found while writing this blog post!
