I was reading with great interest postings in another forum of people complaining about the forthcoming activation in CS2. Now granted, I am not a graphic designer and have no use for the software, but I have purchased other software that does use activation, and I hate it. <br><br>The problem is if you reinstall your OS a couple times a year as I do, then you have to go beg to the developer when you've exceeded whatever arbitrary limit they've decided is how many installations they're going to allow. <br><br>Use a serial number, use a dongle. But for crying out loud...software activation needs to go away...permanently. <br><br>
