Default ahh, that nice Proud Amiga feeling again.

Everytime I see something like this:

http://www.infoaddict.com/ubisofts-n...under-25-hours

and Slashdot comments like those:

Engineering hours building unbreakable DRM: $1.6M
Marketing devoted to managing customer hostility to new DRM: $800K
Lost sales due to customers boycotting your product: $2M
Having some wiseass kid from Sweden break your DRM on the first day: Priceless

I see that the real Amiga is still alive somewhere!

Did they use an Amiga to crack it or something? Interesting article but regarding the thread title I don't see the connection.

Seems it was hacked by Skidrow, they were a famous team on the Amiga back in the days.

Yep. Skid Row. How could I forget those intros...
A lot of modern things are somehow connected to Amiga, like GTA!
