@JimB No, you don't over-thinking it. Over-thinking is a argument for commercials. Personnally, I'm upset by the fact that "a connection to internet" is an implicit in most offers. We are back to 1970s and centralized computer ressources, when IBM lost is hegemony thanks to the PCs (--> Personal <-- computer)

I talked to Wolfram customer support today about the 1-simultaneous user license. I was told it applies only to the service plans over and above the single-device perpetual license. So if my service plan expires without renewal, then I'm back to just having one installation.
With the service plan one would get two activation codes so that Mathematica could be installed on two different machines but just one could be used at a time. So I asked "How is this enforced? Would I need to be connected to the internet so that Wolfram, Inc. could determine if one of the licenses was already in use?"
The answer was "No. No connection to the internet is required." And further it was said that they have no way to check on if both copies were in use. I don't have a problem only using one at a time but given the language that was used, it sure seemed like there was a way to check.
@andre314 So in the end I'm still not totally convinced of what is actually going on.

Practical quantum computers have not entered the mainstream, but that has not stopped researchers and developers from innovating. Simulating quantum results on classical hardware and getting meaningful results from noisy quantum hardware are two important areas with lots of recent innovations. The Wolfram Quantum Framework is a toolkit for Wolfram Language that offers quantum simulations. [R

Learning quantum theory requires dedication and a willingness to challenge classical assumptions. Quantum interference, particularly for massive particles, is a pivotal example in this journey. The Schrödinger equation, inspired by de Broglie‚Äôs hypothesis, revolutionized our understanding by revealing the wavelike nature of even massive particles. This phenomenon not only deepens our grasp of n
