    Does anyone else notice that their is no serial key when you install SL? I know with Windows their always is, but I couldn't find it on my upgrade box just making sure there isn't one.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the world of Apple, where you are trusted not to pirate and you can just install software and enjoy it.

    Apple has never required a serial number for Mac OS X.

    None of apple's operating systems have ever had serial number keys other then apple server operating systems. Kinda nice. I think they intentionally do it so it fosters switchers.

    I think so too. Let switchers use OS X for free; it won't be long before they buy a nice new Mac.

    Since I switched to Mac I started to pay for software too. Never had the feeling that there was anything worth paying for on Windows. But now I don't mind when it's something like OS X or a great app that I don't only use, but really enjoy using. [/fanwank]
