Why do we have EULAs (End User License Agreements)? They are complete noise, and a nuisance to all. If you do feel your software needs a EULA, does it matter if it is displayed in the installer? Why not just put a readme in the box?
End users don’t read them. Even if they do, nobody knows what it means. What purpose do they really serve?
Turns out they don’t protect the software maker: Network Associates.
Why do we have them? How about if on the outside of your computer, we place a sign. The sign would say, “Installing software may break your computer. Stealing software is a crime.”
