In 13 days, I will become an unhappy customer. That's when my "trial" runs out on my work location, and The Brain 7 gives itself a lobotamy.
The Brain 6 supported this situation. You've gone backwards in capabilities, not forwards. As far as I can see as a user, 7 hasn't added any functionality for the professional users, it has just removed capabilities.
I've been an evangelist for The Brain since version 1. But I am becoming very unhappy with this situation. MARKETING doesn't determine functionality. MARKETING will assure customers that their product will eventually be able to beam the customer directly to Saturns orbit so they can enjoy a nice leisuraly scenic view while enjoying the product. The Brain's marketing has been particularly bad about promises and assurances.
Speak with Harlan. If he says it will be supported, that would be something. He's come through on most of his promises over the years, so I trust him. If he won't say, well, I suppose I'll be downgrading to version 6 and sticking with that until the company decides to actually support OFFLINE activation.
Keep in mind that it is the current business trend to cut off access to the internet, particularly to cloud services of any kind, but even the internet in general in "professional" work environments. So if you want to market to "professionals" you will need a product that can function at the purchased capabilities in their common environments.
