Questions about Photoshop purchase

Expert 5K+

Is there any advantage to buying the DVD vs downloading it from the 'net?

Are there any problems if I download from the 'net and, later, install it to a different computer if I bought a new one?

I don't know about Photoshop but I have purchased other things from Adobe and have used their downloading feature. It keeps a reference to everything you've purchased and lets you download the applications whenever you need them...even years after the purchase.

While I prefer a DVD in case something goes wrong, it seems that they have done a really good job at keeping things available to you for a long time (over 5 years even)

I've never had problems downloading from their site because they provide a custom Java application (or ActiveX version) that does it for you.
