Why complain? Some people inlcuding myself have really been helped by it. About a year or so ago I lost my activation code and didn't have any chance of finding it for my new PC I had to transfer it to. Thankfully, they kept my code on file and sent it back. If you plan to use it without internet, it's not like you cant. Just buy a dongle. I bought a dongle for the sole reason I do a bit of traveling.
