I work, and live in the high arctic of Canada. I do not always have internet, even after 99 days. That is just over 3 months, and at times, i am gone for up to 6 months at a time. I would much rather purchase a product that I can use and not worry about it being de-activated because I could not re-activate it within a specific time limit. The whole world does not have access to the internet 365 days a year, and in some locations, such as mine, it is so slow, that even to do a simple task up uploading something, is challenging. I fully understand why Adobe and all other software companies do this, profit.
