What is Defacto2?

Defacto2 is a web site that is dedicated to the preservation of the historic PC cracking and warez scene subcultures.

Defacto2 documents and hosts the legal productions derived from the legacy PC cracking and warez scenes. This means all text files, demos, music, art, magazines and products that are cracking related but are not illegal in themselves are hosted and discussed here.

We chose to cover this niche subject as it was once rarely discussed. We believe that without this collection an important element of the computer underground subculture could be lost and eventually forgotten. Due to the nature of robin-hood piracy with its high-churn rate for participants, it is a community that is neither well documented or understood.

To clarify the term 'PC' refers personal computers that ran Microsoft Windows or earlier IBM-PC compatible computers that ran MS-DOS.

Finally we do not participate in or support software piracy. While it wasn't always the case, these days piracy is classed as a criminal activity. We support software developers and all the tools used to create and host this site were done with purchased or open-source software.
