hey guys. i was just thinking about how XP requires you to activate your OS using an internet connection that can send your registration to MS, and makes sure that you don't put XP on 2 different computers by sending data about your hardware. i was wondering: a) does apple have any kind of protections against piracy in OS X? i have never installed from a CD except my software restore b) how do you feel about MS requiring this in their OS? c) how would you feel if apple required something like activation for OS X?
