Default Help with iWork - 05-13-2010, 04:11 PM

I purchased iWork 09 and wanted to know that on how many Macs can I install it legitimately?

What happens if I install it on more than one? Can I still get updates from Apple?

I think it'll work, but it won't be legal. That's why there's a family pack.

iWork isn't licensed for use on 10v's , iWork updates don't check licence's..

yes you can update without issue on multiple pcs. iwork and ilife don't use product keys. but i'd be careful, folks around here for some reason endorse breaking osx's EULA by putting it on dell machines, but they frown upon putting a single-licensed program on a second machine.

If you installed OSX because of *that* video, you're fooling yourself. A stock Win7 install boots faster than a stock install of OSX on a Mini 10v.

iWork does have a product key, you do need to activate, but do not need to register the copy. And yes, it is an honesty system from Apple as you can physically run your iWork single license copy on multiple machines and update without any issues whatsoever. That of course does not make it legal, but then installing OSX on a Dell is not in accordance with the software licence either.
