Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

There is allways a price/performance ratio. The smaller the ratio is, the better. So let's say I have an amount of money to buy a car. A normal person with a satate of good mental health, chooses the best price/performance ratio within that segment. It's that simple. If you have a small penis, if you aren't sure about your sexual identity, if you were abused in the childhood, then you buy a car which you think that makes you smarter, cooler and also enlarges your penis.

As for activation keys/other protection methods, they don't work. At least they don't work for someone who isn't atechical.

As for using activation keys who don't work with a regular PC, I'll take them in court for obstructing me using a product with I legitmately have bought. It's like Volkswagen obstructing me using the car if I use gas from another seller by modifying key design. I don't know about USA and Common law system, but in EU I'm sure that a lawful and legitimate buyer will win a case in court if someone else is obstructing him to use a product.
