I'd rather they go back to the old days when once
you could install it on as many devices as you pleased.
When, exactly, were those days? They sure weren't in the
of the 70s, nor in the license of DOS and Windows in the
80s and 90s,
and most definitely not in 2000.
***I could install DOS on as many computers as I wanted.
Legally? Well, that's a different matter. I care about the
real world, not their legalise.
I don't blame them for not wanting you to share it with
friends and customers. It would be illogical to think
otherwise, but I resent having to pay for each computer
I happen to agree, and am gravitating heavily toward
rather then per-installation. Per-user is popular on
less common in the PC world.
It should be easy enough for them to track a customer's
license and ensure that that license only is submitted for
activation from the same web address.
Web address? What exactly are you talking about?
***All right, I used the wrong term. Why? Because I'm
getting old and have a bad case of CRS Syndrome. There I go
again, I can't remember the name. The identifying number for
your account that begins with 207... Oops, just remembered
that that changes constantly these days. I'm sure they'll
think of something. <G>
