    If someone purchases Leopard OS disc, how many machines can they install it on?

    One. Unless you buy the family pack. Then five.

    the price difference is not that bad..
    price for 1 license for tiger is 129
    and for 5 licenses for tiger is 199

    I bet that leopard is going to be about the same :)

    According to the license you're buying when you buy the software, just one. Technically speaking the software would install on any number of computers, but that'd be a violation of the license.

    i think that is the guy i talked to was hinting at...

    so physically it can be installed on multiple machines as in big brother will not catch you via some online update/call home

    ethically/legally you can only do one install or 5 depending on which version you buy.

    We're not talking Microsoft here. This is Apple. Welcome to the club.
