I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but this is reason #1 I can't
run Windows on my general purpose computers at home and why I keep
gravitating towards being a rogue Linux desktop in a Windows shop at
work. I can't stand anything related to DRM including software
locking, especially when since I've already got myself over the
learning curve in Linux. I hate installing activation-requiring
software, and I hate having to avoid pissing off the DRM and resetting
the activation workflow.
