Just to inject some humor into the Mac/Windows debate, here's a post
from a user on cubase.net:


Copy protection that gives crackers 0.1% more hassle and legitimate
users 10,000% more hassle are not acceptable.

The XP activation system is a colossal turd. "Ooh ooh you've moved
your network card to a different slot, you must reactivate windows".
What next? "Ooh ooh you changed the font size in notepad, you have to
sacrifice a goat and catch a plane to sodding Timbuktu and show the
goat's liver to a certified MS representative, who will, via laser,
nano-etch a new activation code onto one of the particles of Saturn's
rings. You must then travel to the Valley of the Eternal Guardian and
slay the Dragon of Nanthathothos to obtain the magic tome of
Skydd-Marck, then solve the riddle therein to find out WHICH particle
contains your activation code"?
