comment How is major software protected?
You're right, and thank you for your opinion, except that I think there are others much more qualified to answer that part than I am - Java and C++ aren't exactly my home turf.

comment How is major software protected?
While I agree it doesn't seem to answer the question posed in the headline, it does (IMHO) answer the question of "what a small software company [...] should do", as posed in the last paragraph. And sometimes, answering the unasked question might be more helpful than correctly answering a question without regard for the context. Anyway, I'm fine if this doesn't get your upvote, but I still think it's a useful (if a little abrasive) answer.

comment How many hours can you be really productive per day? How?
For me, the situation has much improved. I'm still at my old job, but much more productive than before. Why? * My job grew much more interesting and my responsibilities (and freedoms) grew * I eat less * I move more (took up a sport, take bike to work) * My meds kicked in (turns out I have hypothyroidism, which makes you tired). This gradual "kicking in" took months. * I make an effort to start the day early and productively * I try and face obstacles I fear, so they don't become roadblocks. So if you're facing the dilemma I faced, ask yourself what caused it, and make changes in your life.

Since this has been closed, I can't add my own answer (more than two years later) so I'm doing it in a comment.

@vartec Sorry, I tend to forget it's not available for the 13". But it is for the 15" and 17".

comment How to avoid “DO YOU HAZ TEH CODEZ” situations?
This answer again proves that often, the best option is telling the truth in a polite way. The asker actually mentioned being interrupted by his colleague, and this (very good, don't get me wrong!) answer basically just tells him: Go ahead and tell your colleague that the interruptions are bothering you. Sometimes, the obvious needs to be pointed out before we can see it.

comment Do multiple computer screens reduce productivity?
@vartec MBPs are available in matte. (I also prefer matte, though I have to say, the glossy screen of my MBP - from a time when they did only come in glossy - only bothers me when I'm outside with it)
