I have been a customer for 10 years. Not once have I had to go through this. Do not give me the excuse to curb piracy, because I have spent way too much money with you over the years and I have never given out my key. I have recommended your products for years, but I may have to change. This is very anticustomer! At a minimum, there should be like 10 activations/mo. Then after 30 days, they get reset, or each activation gets reset automatically after 30 days. I just recently rebuilt my pc and had to do it several times (stupid windows 8.1). I also removed to try classic shell and went back to start8 because it was superior. Now I am treated like a pirate. This forum seems to be half posts of "reset my activations". Something needs to be changed.
I hope the powers that be read this and make changes. There are better ways to curb piracy than activation BS. All it does is piss off your most loyal fans. If someone wants to contact me for an honest discussion, by all means do.
