Subarashii!!! What a relief...I was really scared of this SF thingy, because after reading all those opinions I was afraid it might damage my sytem in some kind of way. As far as it goes there are more and more fantastic news coming one after another in this past few days...

Congrats to all you people afraid that SF was going to take over your computers. Now, when will we se an explanation of this decision, and more important, what will they use instead?

That's the second time fans manage to change Ubisoft's plans in a few months only. What a bunch of whiners we are! :-D

Well, not that SF would affect my play in any way, but I'm glad it isn't there, just in case.

I had an unfinished news item that I kept for a quiet day. It was about the Internet gaming forums, how Starforce was mentionned as soon as Ubisoft made the news (news that had nothing to do with copy protection) and how it could hurt the publisher in the long run. Fortunately, I can discard it now!

I've actually had dreams about the day when "StarForce is Cancelled" news came to pass. Dreams really do come true. :-D

Should we be happy about this? I mean, maybe StarForce will be replaced with something worse like... DEATHFORCE!

Everyone should be happy about this. Luckily there isn't any such copy-protection as "DeathForce" yet. Don't give them any ideas. :rofl:
