Yes, you have to buy it. It's commercial software, just like a lot of
other software. If you want/need it, just pay for it, it won't kill
you. Then install Sun's Java VM. And i've seen no problems with 2000
apps. The worst i had to deal with is a finicky accounting package that
had to be run in "Windows 2000 compatibility mode" to avoid a few minor
glitches, but otherwise ran fine.
I'm not trying to promote MS software here, but don't go around putting
down software because you can't easily pirate it.
