I have seven computers in my household, five of which have Start10 installed. Accordingly, as per the Start10 EULA, I purchased five Start10 licenses. It has never occurred to me to even attempt activating the program on more computers than the license allows; as a matter of fact, I wasn't even aware of that option. That is because I wasn't entitled to deploy each license on more than one machine at a time, to begin with.
Seeing how people complain about a *technical* licensing change – the nature of which has no bearing as far as the terms in question are concerned – really saddens me. All the more so when said software costs $4.99.
Not only do I agree with sdRohan that the *per-computer* asking price of $4.99 is fair, but I actually think that it is on the low side – given the usefulness of the software, its quality and the great support that's being offered to its users.
I'm the same as others here. I have 3 PC's at home that were running Start10 from the single purchase. Now find that I can only activate Start 11 on one PC only. That really sucks and will now re-educate myself to using the Windows menu system. Might even give away 'Fences' and 'Deskscape' too. No wonder people illegally download programs from torrent sites, might even look that way myself.
Re-educating oneself to use the native Windows Start menu system, just in order to avoid a $9.98 (2 x $4.99) purchase? "No wonder people illegally download programs from torrent sites"? Are you serious?
I have been a big supporter of DRM, and given such attitude – it's easy to see why.
