Quartus development kit bundled license?

Most development kits include a one year license. The kit I have in mind is the Arria 10 development kit if it matters. 

 

 

1) Does this mean that Quartus stops working after one year, or will it continue to run after one year, but you're not entitled to upgrades or support? 

 

 

2) Is the bundled license a node locked license only, or is it a floating license? 

 

3) Will the bundled license work on Linux? 

 

Thanks!

Q1 seem to be answered in the Altera licensing FAQ:

14. Q. How do I know whether I am purchasing a perpetual or non perpetual license? 

A. Only licenses for development kits are non-perpetual licenses. Licenses for other softwares are perpetual licenses. 

 

But still 2 and 3 remain to be answered.

Hi Petter,  

 

 

Q2: Is the bundled license a node locked license only, or is it a floating license? 

A: It would be a node locked license.  

 

Q3: Will the bundled license work on Linux? 

A: I think so.
