> Not all software is made in the US
Bloody good job too, given the crap we often have to work with that passes for software coming out of the US.

I'm glad you put "often" but I'd still like to see your data on this. There are a lot of assumptions made about P2P and its uses and I'm not keen on the idea of being suckered in Usenet style by unsubstantiated statements.
> People buy and sell second hand PC's pre loaded with software
Very true. But then that isn't always a bad thing. EULAs are far too restrictive in such areas and can lead to all sorts of confusion with end users, especially at times when they are changing over PCs for whatever reason.
> People buy PC's pre-loaded and setup with software.
Again, quite true. Since this is generally at the insistance of such morons as Microsoft so that they can manipulate the EULA to their own advantage, and is often accepted by end users because they don't want to get their hands dirty on the nasty, grubby task of installation any more than they have to, I don't see this changing much.
> The list goes on and on......Idiot.
That's life. Like it or hate it, you can't ignore it.
Sounds familiar, that does!
