    Hello,
    I use Windows, but I'm going to pass to Ubuntu soon. I'm thus going to install it again.
    I am wondering: what about the product key? Will it work or do I have to remove it first? Can I use it for the steam version?
    Thank you in advance.

    the product key if bought stand alone should work on steam as well. But not sure if seperated from windows to ubuntu.

    you need to use the product key to activate the steam version, because the standalone installer is windows only.
    after that you'll install steam on your Linux machine and let it handle the rest.

    Thank you. So, basically I can use the key each time I format my computer without removing it?

    Well, if you use the steam version you'd only need to activate it once, as long as you dont lose your steam.account.

    That's true. I asked in case I came back to Windows, but after all I can relax as long as I have the steam version.

    yes
    as far as I know there is a counter for the number of activations, but if you hit that limit you can simply contact support to have it reset.
