Where is the best place to buy software from?

Hey guys,

Just wondering where you guys usually buy your software from. Amazon seems to have most products (operating systems, work suites, video editing programs, etc.) at good prices, are they my best bet?

You're talking just physical retail copies, right?
Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.

Actually I meant digital copies, should have clarified that. Or do most people still just buy physical copies these days?

It varies. I've gotten a fair amount of stuff from Amazon - heck, I got the academic edition of Adobe Production Premium on sale from Amazon. However, it's not the only place - I try to always watch for sales and buy wherever it's cheapest. Might be Amazon, Newegg, direct from the producer, retail brick & mortar store...

top tier places is everything except gamefly, gamespot and some would probably argue origins but since a bunch of EA's games are exclusive to the platform, you're going to have to fork over either way..
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

There are freeware that does as good or better than paid products. A lot of us just use freeware.

That depends on the software.
