Can somone purchase the single user version but then intsall on 2 computers? What happens if you try? From switching from PC's to Macs, I've noticed a lack of security of program installing. Does this carryover to their OS?

Please hold back the "just pay $70 more dollars, you cheapo" and all that "poo". :D I know people had to of at least tried this, I'm just curious as to what happens.

Thanks.

two computers

To my knowledge, you can install the various versions of OS X on more than one machine. I have done so on one occasion to test the OS on an older iMac before buying the upgrade. I have a friend who has always bought the single user version and installed it on all the family Macs. You can also drive 75 mph in a school zone, but that is not right either. I know yuo don't want to hear it, but it is only another &70 to do the right thing.

Thanks. Oh, I'm aware of the "right" thing and all that. Not debating what I would be doing would be wrong. Just asking if I could. It's like adding ROMs to our phones. Illegal, but no one cares. :D

Thanks for letting me know. Knowing how Apple has been, this may be the first year w/activation similar to MS's Windows*

***that's my guess, no proof or anything, just my guess***

In the past, you could buy the family version for just $20 more and have a license to install it on 5 computers in your household.
