    So if I understand this correctly, there's seriously a much lesser-adopted dongle format that some fuckheads decided to use instead of iLok? I've always loved the concept of iLok and never understood the hate (when the alternative is online activations and challenge/response bullshit), but I can't deny I'm pretty grumpy about having to buy another needlessly bulky flash drive looking thing just cuz these assholes can't agree on a standard (and I'm sure either company could cram all the necessary hardware into something like the little guy on the left) - fuck you Syncrosoft, time for you to get the Betamax/HD DVD treatment :D

    Pretty sure it's only German companies that use it. Steinberg is on them, as well.

    Well, the iLok have been cracked several times, right? Might be a reason for companies to avoid them.

    True, but wouldn't the eLicenser have to have been cracked also, given all the pirated copies of Cubase floating around? In any event, damn German wurst-gobblers :D

    Not since 6 AFAIK, and not on OS X.
