[opensuse] Re: Piracy
Since I came from the mainframe era, I have been saying for years, the best way MS (and others) can stop piracy, like the mainframe, query the CPU serial number (if not available now, make it so) and have an encryption key built off of it. That way of the encryption key does not match, the software does not run.
