Sounds right to me.  I won't miss it.  As far as I'm concerned, the 
more Microsoft Corporation squeezes and controls its willing victims,
the more assistance Papa Darwin gains thereby.

I don't even care whether Microsoft is abusing the legal rights of
people who participate in this folly.  They may well be.  If the victims
want to bring suit to let Microsoft shoot only _antiseptic_ holes in
their feet, that's up to them.  (I don't buy all the ".NET Will Conquer
All" Chicken-Little-ism now in fashion.) 

Cheers,                                      "Reality is not optional."
