I still don't understand who this is affecting. I've been playing games on the PC since there were games on the PC, and 've never experienced the kind of issues DRM supposedly creates.
You've been playing games all this time, and have never: * Had to put a CD into the computer to play a game that already installed all its data to the hard drive? * Had to 'authenticate' a game online? * Had to connect to the internet to play a single-player game?
You don't need to believe that Starforce killed your DVD drive to have issues with DRM, and most of the issues can be extrapolated from the above points, even if you don't consider them to be problems.
