I can't let the observation about standards of living (posted from Oz) 
slip past without comment.

For comparison, in the UK, a BMW 5-Series costs about US$60,000. In 
Singapore, it costs around US?250,000 - they have a massive tax to deter car 
ownership.

And guess which Car manufacturer sells more cars than any other in 
Singapore ?                 .........      Mercedes-Benz.

In Singapore, they have an average standard of living considerably higher 
than the USA and all of Europe. And Australia.

And they can't afford to buy non-pirated software ?
