Op Ed

TechSpot Blog - Why even pay for software? A declaration against poorly implemented DRM.
"Every time I change a major piece of hardware I end up with a warning message informing me that I have two days to reactivate my copy of Windows. Okay, that’s not so bad. Just click re-activate then shall we. Hang on, that didn’t work, and now I have to ring the Microsoft support center based on India and try to communicate a 60+ digit code to someone I can barely understand. After that process is done I can finally use my computer again. Yay! Well… at least until I need to change/upgrade something again."

Yeah, I had the same experience, and after I told the call center rep "This is really a pain in the ass", they hung up on me.
