You take that risk with everything really. If your AVR fails during warranty and the company has disappeared, for example. It isn't something that worries me much I have to say. It could happen. It...

OK. I'm not sure why the first is that much of a problem though. It connects to the Internet for a second or two, checks that you are a licensed user and that's it. Why it would be a dealbreaker for...

What is that you object to?

Have you ever read the license terms you agree to when you use Windows or Mac OS-X?

I too use an 'active' USB cable - not as long as yours, about 30 feet here. And like you I can confirm this is no problem at all. Ingenious use of the unit(s) BTW!

Good idea - you can of course save as many configs as you wish and upload them as needed. Only takes a minute - but not as easy as pressing a button I agree,

You might also want to consider the nanoAVR-DL which is less than half the price of the 88A IIRC and has the same DL version as the 88A.
