Work around any technical limitations in the software...

That's taken from the dreaded Windows EULA. What kind of drivel is that? Probably the kind that encourages people to think of computers as appliances that should (Dare I say it!) just work... Well, it doesn't work that way for ANY computer system! OK so you might buy a PC from the same store you got your TV or fridge but it is not an appliance like those other items!
