Hi all,

Just upgraded to leopard and I wanted to know if I could instal the same disk on my old ibook as well. I had heard that you could install on up to 3 computers in the same house before needing the family pack. Is this true or will it only let me install one one mac.
QUOTE Thanks

The normal $129 Leopard is for One system. You need the Family pack for 2-5 installs.

Are you sure? Leo Laporte was saying that you could put it on more than one system. He was also saying that mac was not that worried about people doing this and that M.S. was the one that had theirs locked so you could only install it one one pc. I totally remember him saying that you could install it one 3 macs and the family pack was up to five. Is this possible but apple really does not want you to or do they have it protected like M.S. does.

It really does not matter if it's locked or not. It's against Apples EULA to install it on more than one system unless it's the family pack. It is against the rules of Mac Forums to discuss anything against Apples EULA.

Sorry.

I am shocked that Leo would encourage people to go against Apples EULA.

yea...its seems really strange that someone would encourage you to do that...coz then the family pack would make no sense & no one would buy it

<< i can explain it to you...but i can't understand it for you... >>

Leo Laporte should get a call from Apple Legal any second now because he obviously has not read or doesn't care about Apple's EULA (End User Licence Agreement).

I was not saying I was going to do it I was just really sure that that is what I heard on the radio show. I could have been mistaken but thats what I though was said.

I guess its off to the Apple store again, I need this on both my macs

I did the upgrade on my MacBookPro and had no problems at all. Nothing like doing an upgrade on my old PC, what a nightmare that was.
