It has been about 24 hours since you wrote those lines, do you have any reason
to think that the replacement you dread so much has not already happened?
How would things be the slightest bit different if they did?

>I do not want him destroyed and replaced by a new Harvey Newstrom.

But are you the same man as the man who wrote that?

Who cares, a CD is just a plastic disk, you still have access to Windows.

>If we destroy my software of my machine, I can't use it anymore.

You can if you made a copy, and you won't be able to tell the slightest difference.

>Our goals are different

I have a hunch our goals are exactly the same.
