just being honest
i have bought 95,98,2000 and ran all those legit
but they didnt have activation
i also change my machine hardware alot -
* quickbooks just went through a whole big customer backlash over activation.. food for thought
re: monks - make everything free then - sorry the analogy doesnt cut it.
your main competitor offers a free version of what you sell. Last time i checked there were no free colas attacking Coke's lead.
Free betas no hoops is still a simple way to at least give developers something free to build too - although its still not free for release - and theres no source ( like Shared Source Program )
