Finally, The Truth on OEM Software

I just read a great article on OEM software, called Buying OEM versions of Windows Vista: the facts.  I am sure the data here could be extrapolated to any OEM software.

The basics with OEM versions of Vista are:

  1. You absolutely can buy OEM versions lawfully.
  2. There is no difference between OEM and non-OEM versions (EXCEPT):
  3. It is tied to your motherboard: You cannot move it to a new computer 3 years from now or upgrade your motherboard.
  4. Once you open the OEM package, you can no longer return it.
