WinZip: my confession

After 8-10 years of using WinZip, and opening thousands and thousands of archives, and creating hundreds if not thousands of archives I have registered WinZip. That’s right. I actually bought a license.

When I first started using it, I didn’t actually have any money to buy it so I just figured I’d use it until I did. Well, after using it a while one gets used to pressing I agree, Use Evaluation copy, or whatever the button said as the versions changed. I stopped noticing it. This happened with a few other never expiring applications as well (Edit Plus for example, which I finally registered a few months ago).

I no longer have any unregistered and expired software on my computer (that I use anyway, I guess there could be some hiding around that I’ve forgotten about).
