Legal New Zealand leads the way. "The government has announced a change to planned new patent rules today which has put an end to fears that computer software might be covered by new patent protection." Also, here's the evidence that nobody (except lawyers, (un)paid company lackies, and corporate managers) wants software patents: "Matthews said a recent poll of more than 1000 Kiwi IT professionals found 94 per cent wanted to see software patents gone." Let that sink in for a while: 94%.

I know nothing about their immigration policies but one thing I know for sure is: they have the most amazing landscapes of all world packed on a surface you are able to travel without expending a year (and a lot of money) to visit. You can actually visit very different environments on a weekend! I am fascinated by their geography and geology.

Know nothing about the citizens though and would miss my friends and members of family, as also my favorite sport (football, the real one, initial, true UK sense).

They have the Maori. What more do you need? And rugby is so much more violent and enjoyable to watch than soccer. ;)

After watching a game or two of rugby you simply cant watch football for a month without shouting at the TV!

How can a rugby player get up and be fine after being crushed by a 150kg player in a tackle yet a footballer roll around for 5 mins because someone pulled his shirt...
