Virtualization Apps in Top Software Torrents for Week of December 8

December 9, 2014


Welcome back to the latest Top 10 Most Pirated Applications - a dive into the depths of the world of the top software torrents.

First up on our list this week is a newcomer to the Top 10 called BlueStacks. This software allows users to run Android applications on Windows-based computers by using virtualization technology. With more than double the swarm size of the next torrent, it is clearly a popular product.

Next up is VMware Workstation, another virtualization product that is much more widely known and one that we’ve seen more than once on our list. This release includes a serial key that permits full access to all features.

We also see two releases of WinRAR’s 5.20 software, one with a serial key and the other in pre-activated form. We’ve seen other releases of this software in the past and expect to see more as new revisions are released.

That’s not the only recurring software found this week however. We also see new versions of Internet Download Manager, Adobe Photoshop, Pinnacle Studio, and Windows 7. These releases are updated versions of what we’ve seen in the past and continue to draw large swarms with their popularity. We expect to see more of these in the future as the companies that create them develop new versions.
