Default BioShock 5 Time Activation DRM

I would like to purchase a copy of Bioshock. However the 5 time activation Digital Right Management has me feeling a little uneasy.

Does any one know if the Steam Version has the same 5 time activation?

5 times is better. However I really do not like the idea that my computer game that i have purchased has a used by date.

all you have to do is uninstall it before you re-install it.
