However, as a *user* I see registration another way.
I see it as being put on somebody(s) marketing list(s) to receive their unsolicited marketing materials (i.e. spam).
Thus I largely opt out on the "please register your software".
Yes, I put my right to privacy ahead of their right to marketing data.
If there are two things I *love* about open source, they are:
1) usage without fee or registration
2) the ability to fix a *really* annoying bugs
PS: Yes, I have made a career of writing computer software.
