You can indefinitely activate your copy of the game on the same PC. You start with three activations (so, three different PC hardware configurations) to begin with. After one month, one activation will be re-credited (up to a maximum of three available activations at any given time).

If you change your hardware out a lot or roam around on a bunch of different PC's then this could be a problem for you.

What seems to be the biggest issue of contention about the sim is that it uses Steamworks and is tethered to Steam. Many polls on the official forum asking if Steam should be removed from the game etc ;P
If it uses Steamworks, then why the fuck do they need to slap on another DRM scheme to limit activations? This just went on my "wait and see" list. I could go live with one or the other, but both? Besides, IL2-1946 still has plenty of life left in it.
