I bet 95% of the DNA Strider copiers out there are not registered (which,
unfortunately, is the same for any shareware). However, if you think it's a
good program and would like to see it improved, the only way its going to
happen is if the author can generate the funds to continue development. I
don't think Christian Marck pockets the money. Instead, he's a computing
scientist with other things to do.
Perhaps if more people paid up (its worth much more than $200) he'd be able to
spend more time on it (and compile a PowerMac native version optimized for the
