Does Microsoft office v.x have that product activation thing that winxp and officexp have? I want to install it on my brother's tibook and my tibook when I get it.

While I'm not promoting anyone ripping off Microsoft of their hard earned and richly deserved money ;) you have to be careful with installing multiple copies of the same software. Office v.X doesn't require activation like on PCs, but if you are on a network trying to run the same copy on multiple machines Office will look out on the network and prevent the second copy opened from running.

Yea, I did this. If someone else tries to get on with the same serial number, both applications quit on both computers. Although...

THERE IS A HACK to fix this in the terminal. If you want it, just email me!
