I want to buy the Production Premium CS3 educational lincense but I read that it only activates once per 12 months which doesn't work for me because I reinstall windows frequently to get rid of viruses and other problems. I've been screwed before with activation because I format a lot, so can someone tell me if this is true? It seems hard to believe adobe would be so dumb as to make a tech enthusiast program only activate yearly.
"Students will only be able to register one copy of each product in a 12 month period." http://www.educationsoftware.com.au/product.php?id=413
That's probably not where I'd buy it from, but I assume all the licenses are the same. Unless student and educational are different because that site says "student" copy and most say "educational" or "learning" license.
