Riding a tall horse, a high horse, is not a bad thing, if that ridership is justly acquired. An honest man should ride, and stand, tall. I did not claim otherwise. Find your sadness elsewhere.

I will pursue, however, "I have a lisence for every MP3 I own". This can only mean that not a single one was ripped from a CD/DVD and that each of them is DRM. I have a number of non-DRM MP3s that I purchased from Amazon.com. They were acquired in good faith, but I have no license for those.

And very few of us "own" any software. You might own the installation media.

Please highlight the word, or implication of, 'everyone' in my post.

Correct, not a single one was ripped from CD/DVD/movie or what ever else you want.

I find it ammusing your attempts to find the lowest common denominator. Sorry, I refuse to lower myself to that.

I too own all my music and software, fully paid for.

It's sad that such a thing is considered almost unbelievable or special in anyway
Could not agree more.

And now back to our regular programming....LOL
Two more days! Next month I'll have been using W7 (pretty much exclusively) for a year now, on 6 machines. It's been quite a ride.
At some point I'll be getting my W7 Ultimate disk for Phase II Beta (RC) testing. That's kind of a waste because of my TechNet subscription. If it wasn't prohibited by the use agreement, I'd gladly give it to a needy soul. Zidane24 comes to mind because of all his recent work.
