    OS 10.5 Upgrade - Stupid Question?
    From what I've seen of Leopard, I can't wait for next spring so I can upgrade both my (G5) iMac and (intel) MacBook. The question is will I require two copies or will a single version work with both processors?

    no you will require a family pack. It can be installed on up to 10 computers. Or you could buy 2 single versions but that would be more pricey

    Yes you can buy one copy and it would work on both comptuers, it has to be the family pack though, because the single copy pack only has a license to be run on one computer. Buying the family pack allows you to install it on more then one computer (10) and it does not cost that much more then the single copy pack.

    Cool
    I thought the family pack was/is a five user license.

    Yep, you're right, the family pack (OS X, iLife or iWork) has 5 licenses, not 10.
