OEM - clarification needed.

302 8
Reading the sticky something came to mind...

if i bought an OEM processor... i cannot use it in another MB than the one i first install it on??

whats the difference between an OEM os and an OEM cpu?

that makes no sense.

OEM operating system can only be used once on the computer it was designated to be used on...

OEM only means that for operating systems... for everything else, it just means it comes without all the usual packaging (with CPUs, it means it doesn't come with the stock heatsink)
