What you're forgetting Toni is programmers generally don't think like a cracker would, or they work for a company and just get their wage and don't really care what happens to it.
You are right, not the first time so called "protection" was done by someone who does not care or know even basic cracking methods..

It seems very though. Galahad and StingRay tried it but couldn't get a 100% cracked release.
It has a disk-protection check and a dongle-protection check.
It would be totally different thing. AFAIK this dongle is much more advanced (2xunmarked chips) than stupid "one resistor between +5v and POT-line with check done by some clueless programmer"
