    Hey there,
    If my wife has a separate iTunes account than I do, does this mean I can expect to purchase two Lion apps (one for each) or do you think I can purchase on one and then on the other computer, sign in as me (example), DL Lion, install and then sign back on as her? Would that work?

    Sure, $30 is a good deal and is only $30, but hey...$30 is $30.

    Buy it on yours, then copy the download to hers and just install, no signing in or anything necessary

    You should just be able to sign in on the same profile on both computers, and you won't have to worry about it.

    Cool, so just using USB, open and install will work? Sweet!, thanks Nuckin'

    Just make sure you have a USB drive big enough for Lion.

    I've got a question similar to this:
    If I bought it on one account, but use another account as default, would I need to log in to the first on to update? (Ahh, then what happens to SoftwareUpdate?)

    Which is about 4GB for the installer, I believe.

    I am pretty sure that point updates will still be delivered through Software Update.

    And people buying Lion after a dot release will most likely get Lion with that integrated. Would make sense at least.
