The thread 'Anyone tried Yellow Tools' Independence?' (see
developed more or less into some kind of poll 'do you like dongles or not'.
I post a summary here in a new thread so it'll not be burried down in some
other thread, so developers don't have a reason to say 'never seen this one'.
I've made a simple count on how much of the threads participants think
dongles are good and how much don't like dongles. I've left out the ones
who either didn't make a clear statement or would buy a library even when they
don't like dongles that much.
So far 6 users are pro dongle, 11 users are against dongles.
I know this number of participants isn't statistically relevant, but I think it
shows the interesting tendency that a company introducing dongles could
probably lose 50 % of their potential buyers (okay, the special kind of buyers
spending some of their time here in the forums ) just by dongles.
PS: it's TIME for the sound develop companies to sit together for some kind
of 'dongle standard' so we users would only need one single dongle for all
of our libraries no matter which brand.
You wouldn't want to change the power outlet in your kitchen just because
your better half has bought a new toaster that uses its own proprietary
'security' design and isn't compatible with your coffee machine!
