A dongle option would be *really* great
i'd be happy to pay an additional €100 - €150 per dongle. This would easily cover the hardware expense and the "donglification" process is easy to manage from a development point of view. We used to use HASP for VJamm Pro, it's a great solution and would give an option of internet free usage which is very important for some use cases.
I think a dongle *option* would be great.
Completely moving to a dongle would be a nightmare for me.
I personally will never use an application again (outside my studio) that requires a dongle.
Touring as an audio engineer, having iLok's damaged and broken was a nightmare! They also eat-up a USB port, when typically, I'm already at my limit (I rather not use Hubs)
For remote install applications, this could be a good solution. For the other 90% of the users, I think it would be more of a headache.
Just my 2 cents
