Anyone else have 2 Macs at home and use the single user for both computers?
Technically, yes. One license per machine.
lol duh! "Technically, yes" BUTTTTTT can you still install on both machines with single user pack?
You can use one disk to upgrade both machines, you should buy two disks... but there is literally nothing that would stop you from buying only one and installing it on multiple machines, besides that it is wrong.
If you're a thief.
Can yes. Should, that is up to you.
No. C'mon, it's $50--are you really that much of a cheapskate? I mean, for a full-blown $130 OS I can see the reasoning if you don't have much cash lying around, but even then you can find OS X for very little online from 3rd-party retailers. Hell, I found the Mac Pack (OS X Leopard + iLife '09 + iWork '09) family license for $160 online.
But in this case? You're already spending $30, just pay the extra $20 and be legit.
You can, but when Apple goes broke due to loss of revenue from pirates like you, you'll have no further OS upgrades at all.
Do the right thing - 2 X $29 is > $49 (family pack)
you can install it if that is what you are asking. but it violates the term "single user" doesn't it?
read the whole EULA and you will see it is illegal to install it on more than one machine.
if it is a question of feasibility - then yes it can be done
if it is a question about morals - then you need to consider it, not us.
Go Ahead, Install it on a million machines, Put it on a torrent search.
Just don't whine and moan when someday they implement CD Keys, and Activation.
But if you do, I hope karma catches up, and you drop your macbook down a flight of stairs, and thrash yourself on the banister.
Holy geesh, did I bring out the flames, or what? damn you people. I should have mentioned in my original message that I already purchased the family pack and was just wondering if there was anything during the install process that tracks how many installations have taken place, i dont know. It was just a harmless question. No need for flaming.
Oh. That makes a difference. We like you again.
Just funnin' wit ya.
Just buy it. Good for your soul.
Remember all you hackintosh owners . . . oh, never mind . . .
