Hmmmm.... so here we see the Linux equivalent of WGA. Copy protection
that's being used to ensure that people don't illegally copy (read -
pirate) software. Or to paraphrase many other posts... Linux software
that "treats customers as if they were theives."
If done on Windows it's immoral and insulting to the user who bought a
legit copy of the app. But now this is somehow a positive "benefit"
because it's being done on Linux. Put this in the same category as
"RedHat phones home" but that's now a positive thing too.
