Its so nice to be ablet to download somthing, open the disk image, and drag it into the applications folder, instead of haveing to deal with stupid install programs and registry updates. and deleting programs is so much easier too, just throw it away I think i'm in love so now for a question. I plan on gettting an external hard drive for backups. Can I copy my applications folder to my external HD, and if my computer should ever crash, I can just replace the applications folder with the backup and have all my programs work? Or if I ever get a Mac desktop (which I want to do) put it on there and have the programs work? If there is no registry or anything, this should work, right? and if so, doesnt that cause piracy problems for mac software developers?
