    well to make us all happy, JOHN DEERE does the same with their tractors.

    JD has built in software that will work only with genuine JD parts. Which are apparently way overpriced. But nothing else, even better then the original JD parts worked.
    But the farmers got help.UKRAINIAN computer boys are selling - fake- software that overrides JD crap. And the farmer can repair his own tractor once more.
