I will be buying a new iMac soon, but I'm not sure if I should wait for Leopard. I currently run Tiger on a Macbook. Will the restore discs with the iMac load Leopard on my Macbook (if I wait for Leopard's release)? Will the Migration Assistant work between Tiger and Leopard to load the Macbook data to the iMac? I would like to have the same OS on each machine. If I buy the iMac now and buy Leopard later, can I load it on both systems or do I need to buy a multiple user package to do that. Thanks for any replies...

I would guess that you'd need a multiple user package yes. And as far as I know, data transfer between macs should be fine. Was it ok between OSX 10.3 and 10.4? I think it was. It's not a whole new OS, just an upgrade, so all should be pretty smooth

There is no reason to wait.

No.
Will the Migration Assistant work between Tiger and Leopard to load the Macbook data to the iMac?
Yes.
I would like to have the same OS on each machine. If I buy the iMac now and buy Leopard later, can I load it on both systems
No, not according to the EULA.
or do I need to buy a multiple user package to do that.
Yes, that is what you will need to do.

Apple do a 5 user "household" license for not a lot more than a single user license, so there's really no reason not to go for that. I suppose it's Apple's way of getting people to go the legal route; if it's only a little extra to install it on 5 computers legally then why not?

Indeed,

So when I buy my new iMac before October, I could share Leopard license with my brother in law

In my eyes that's household

(the word says law! don't suggest its illegal then!)

And as final touch,God created the Dutch!
