Windows activation sucks, I am writing this on a OS X and listening to a podcast on Ubuntu from TWIT, although the video and the audio are of different programs right now. No wonder I don't use Windows anymore, I seem to remember that I spent most of my time in Windows doing stupid things like activation and drivers, a Mac just works and Ubuntu just works, no hassle, simpler easy and open source in that case. Yet they want to capture the minds again with Windows 7, and I am hearing about all this activation crap on TWiT, I am now inclined not to use it, I almost warmed up to it, but no, not interested anymore, no wonder Apple has such a high PE, and MSFT such a low one. However I remember once hearing an IT guy crying on the phone to Adobe about how hard it is to move a copy from one computer to another, I guess Gimp will get some users from this hassle, yet PhotoShop is still better then Gimp.
