Hi Liam,
Personally speaking, I think this is really goodnews. While I know that in theory machine specific keys are more secure, it does crack down on casual piracy, etc it also is a hastle for developer and customer alike. For a small one/two man operation fulfilling those frequent key replacements can be a serious annoyence. For customers that legally paid for the product having to wait a week or more for a new key gets to be frustrating, annoying, and down right sucks. I've got a couple of games right now on my computer that needs new keys, because I just upgraded the motherboard in my computer a month or so back. I'm personally sick of dealing with machine specific keys forreasons just exactly like that. I want to upgrade my system and then have to get a new key for half my software. That's rediculous.
