druck: So, having had some of the difficulties with your proposed system pointed out in c.s.a.misc you give up and scurry away to Drobe to try them out here.

The problems and licencing issues are just the same, they haven't changed. It *might* seem like a good idea but, as I've already pointed out, there are issues with the method that you probably aren't aware of and which I'm not about to discuss in public.

However, for the benefit of others please remember we're not just talking about a "normal" piece of software but also a complete commercial operating system with many add-ons and extensions and lots of other (licensed) 3rd party software and IPR, so it's a lot more complicated than simply working out how to do it with some sort of hardware dongle.
