    Simple question - or so I thought.

    If I buy Leopard when it comes out - can I install it on both my macs? I never know with mac software how many machines you can use it on.

    Office for the Mac specificlly gives you three licences. Again I am not sure about iLife or iWork.

    Anyone know?

    Legally no. You'd need the family pack.

    you can but you can't; unless you buy a family pack, you legally aren't allowed to install it on more than one mac. but there is no restriction (other than legal) stopping you from doing so.

    I think iLife has a family pack but im not sure about iWork.

    also, the disks which came with a mac, say iMac, won't install OS X on a different mac, say Mac mini.
