    Thumbs down License question?
    How can we tell how many lion installs we are currently running? Or how many of our 5 that we currently have used up.

    - I have used the lion recovery feature to reformat my computer.
    - I want to install and run Lion inside of parallels


    iTunes.app says only 1 computer is authorized to play content from my AppleID.


    - Will I be able to reformat my computer, via lion recovery, after i have "hit my 5 installs"? I thought the 5 installs rule meant 5 different computers (not 5 installs of the product)

    - Will I be able to install Lion in more than 4 VMs?



    Thanks for the help, as always.. I love you guys <3

    Are you serious? They don't audit your number of downloads?

    I thought they blocked you/apps from installing on more than 5 machines.

    It's called the "honor system". It has been this way with the Apple OS since 1984!
