I was wondering how many times you can use vista (like how many times can u activate it before it is illegal). An can u use it on 2 different computers?

I remember reading a while ago that Vista can only be activated once.

OEM - Can activate it as many times as you want on the SAME computer. However it is bound to that computer. Once you pass a certain amount of points it becomes un useable. And is classed as a diferent computer (this happens when you change the hardware)

Retail - Can be installed on any computer as many times as you like. However it can only be installed on ONE computer at a time.

For example, ou can remove it fromy our computer and put it on your friends. However it cannot be on both comuters at the same time.

Hope this helps a bit.
