    What's the point of buying a OSX Mountain Lion volume license 20+ which costs $19.99 each license ( ) while we can just buy ML in Appstore, mount to USB and install on unlimited MACs?

    It's for companies. The "install on unlimited machines" is for personal machines, not business or educational machines.

    i got another question. what's different with using the same ID on the second MAC to download ML on Appstore vs installing ML directly by the file downloaded from the first MAC (file InstallESD.dmg)

    Because people are sharing that file over the internet, does that mean everyone will have a licensed OSX? then what's the point of buying it while right after few hours it's been seeded? that's not fair

    There's no difference between downloading it or using the InstallESD.dmg. Mountain Lion has no DRM whatsoever.

    With regards to downloading it free from an Internet seed or paying for it in the AppStore, that decision falls within the purview of your own morality or habits. :D

    i thought owning a licensed OSX downloaded on Appstore would give me a better support from Apple or some other benefits :mad:
