    what are the rules official and unofficial.

    I purchased tiger. I installed it on my mini. Can my brother install it on his Apple computer too?

    There is no product code on the box. I thought I read you can install it on up to three, and anymoe you have to buy the larger license pack.

    whats the deal?

    Mac since 7.5
    Pretty sure you have two choices with Mac OS X: Buy a single user license (for just one computer), or buy the Family pack (for up to five computers all used in the same home).

    Anything else is stealing. No judgement intended.

    oh yes I agree, anything else IS stealing, legally.

    My question is can you physically do it, and will Apple know?

    because if they dont know.......why dont they put number codes on the box like windozs?

    If you know it's stealing, why do you care if you can do it?

    If you're curious, try it and see if you get a call from Apple legal. :rolleyes:

    As for why they don't serialize it, don't know. More user friendly, I suppose. And trusting.

    Not interested in your opinion, just asking for facts.

    Well you're going to get opinions when you come here asking this type of question. The fact is under the license agreement you can install on 1 machine and 1 machine only. If you want to try your luck on another machine, that's your business. Don't get shirty with people here when you're not hearing what you want to.
