Hmm , interesting , licenses are good as a legal protection.
But once your software is "cracked" the time limitation etc removed,
and its available online . No one ( the vast majority of home users )
is going to buy that software right ?

Illegitimate copies of Windows , Photoshop etc.

But that's not what i want to discuss right now.

I think ,Py2exe PyApp and python eggs , address my initial question , at 
the moment.

Thanks to all !
