I respectfully disagree, the more a piece of software is restricted the less I want to buy it. I understand the concern of piracy (I have written my share of software as well) BUT if I purchase a piece of software I expect it to work on the #of licenses I have purchased. As I am "licensing" the software I expect to be able to use said software for the term of the license (in this case term of license=forever according to an earlier post), It is reasonable that I may change computers during the time that the license is in effect so I would expect to be able to do so (and it may be more than 3 times but then again it may be less). Especially considering what this software is used for (in vehicles) where there is a big possibility of downed hard drives, and broken components.Originally Posted by StaggRLee
Basically I have a problem with paying for a "license" and getting treated as I paid for a physical product. For $150 I would expect better (and for $200 I would really expect better). Not to mention the fact that everything is going to be done in "the future" (as in non-forum support, ability to change machines etc). Please note this is not just streetdock, I still run Windows 2000 on my Windows machines for this very reason as well.
Mabey I expect to much and as it is their product they are more than welcome to do whatever they want to do with it (I am not downing streetdeck in any way) but I will exercise my choice not to purchase the license until there is a different copyright scheme. I will say the product looks good but the licensure is subpar (in my humble opinion).
