Well yes that's another option; stick with ILM but provide an option to
deactivate our keys over FSActivate.

Hear hear to the policy being bull.


If they love their activation keys so much, provide us with a means of
putting backa license code.

The policy on resetting authorization is bull.  I pay my money to get the
sma and all and this is how customers get treated.  I work on many computers
and only 1 at a time.  People wonder why others pirate software.  This is
why.  Used to be that you were allowed 3 activations and when you got to 1
you could request a reset.  One way you can make sure you have a computer to
work on is to install all software and create a ghost image.  That way when
you run into problems you can just restore the system from the ghost image.
You will probably need sighted help to install and use ghost.  Another thing
you can do is if you were a jaws user from way back when you can use
teledisk to create a copy of the old jaws authorization disk.  While the new
functionality of jaws won't be there you can run xp.  If you want, you can
create 100 copies of the auth disk.  As apple makes mainstream devices more
accessible and other companies make new devices and/or software,  fs will
probably tighten things up more.
