    Speaking from a purely hypothetical standpoint:

    Yes and no.

    Most places on the internet use the catch phrase "warez" to attract hits and exposures to the pornography ads they've plastered all over the site as a way to make money. Often they'll have broken links or only outdated software.

    However, occasionally, with patience and time, you can come across sites with commercial software for download out on the internet. Usually it helps if you have a specific program in mind when you go hunting and plan on using a number of different search engines.

    Do I personally know of any sites to download software? No. I don't really do that kind of stuff because I don't have a high enough software demand to consider piracy as a viable alternative.

    Just use a file sharing client for Gnutella, like Limewire. It's just like swapping songs.

    P2P software is the way to go. Don't waste your time with warez sites, they're more annoying than porn sites offering "naked" pictures of Jennifer Aniston or other crap like that.

    Not that I would know, of course....
