Might as well just buy the uPlay version and save myself the hassle of running both Steam & uPlay ?

Save yourself the headache of having to update it through uPlay, and get the Steam version instead.

What hassle? With any Ubisoft game on Steam, you click on the play button on Steam and the game starts. When you quit the game, you have to click the Quit Uplay. I really don't see how that's somehow intrusive or even a hassle to deal with.

no...no it doesn't

when you click on the game in steam it brings up uplay
then it asks you to login (even though it's supposed to be on auto login)
then it never works in offline mode because it says you haven't run the game before even when you totally have
then it has to update something
then it does some stupid cloud save thing that doesn't even work and has to be cancelled out of every damn time
then you have to launch the game from uplay
then it runs an ad from uplay upon exiting the game
