Can whoever gets to installing it post back to let us know if it contains the dreaded 3 activation limit DRM?

I read several threads on the steam forums where this question was asked several times without an answer. However there was nothing in the steam EULA about it.

The only reason I would ever need to completely reinstall on steam would be a hd failure anyways. I know that doesn't answer the question thou..

1 day and 4 hours for Europe. That's about 5 hours before the morning of the 19th, when we will have it in shops... By the time it finishes downloading, the shops will be open... Great job Valve... I might have purchased it if it was actually unlocked on the 18th...

How big is the download? I've seen people say 15GB based on the steam system requirements, but that sounds absurd...

I think it was about 7GB. Crysis wars (MP) is like another 7GB.
