Sure. I think it's awesome because in a time of difficulty (the economy is still recovering), an honest developer openly emailed a company to ask for a serial key rather than simply pirating the software and rather than simply turning away a customer, Balsamiq was nice enough to grant the help the engineer needed. In a world where software get pirated all the time, and something I know DiC have strong opinions on, this to me is awesome. That and I think Balsamiq is an awesome piece of software (I use it myself).

Obviously for any web devs here, if you haven't used Balsamiq, I would have recommended regardless if this post came about or not. But it just makes me like the company more now ;)

If you are going to advertise your site why not put the url
http://www.balsamiq.com/

also the FORUM YOU POSTED WARNED OF ISSUES WITH VIRUS on that site not a good plug.

LOL not advertising and it's not my site. Was more focused on the story than just the company. And the site you claim to be giving off warnings is Reddit. It's widely known in the tech community.

Probably the same reason it was shared on Reddit. I like the story and what it represents. I figured of all the people out there, the DiC community would appreciate something like this, especially given the stance of how they feel about software, privacy, etc..
