Barring the obvious answer of “they can be used to illegally own software”, why is everybody so freaked out by them?
I’ve noticed that around here, the first mention of NO-CD almost always gets the thread shut down by a mod. In truth, this thread probably will as well.
While there are negative connotations to NO-CD, there are enormous POSITIVE benefits as well. Anybody who owns a laptop or a lot of games can speak to this.
Personally, I have about 15 different games open on my computer right now. (Don’t freak, I own them all legally). I always seek out the NO-CD because I don’t have to switch the stupid cd when I want to play a different game.
Even more so is when I go over to my buddies house w/ my laptop, I don’t need to drag the CD’s with me, I have everything I need on the computer with me. Talk about a reduction in “wear and tear” on the discs.
Anyway, I just want to know why everybody’s toes curl up when somebody mentions NO-CD stuff.
