OEM just means good for one machine or specific configuration. You can not use the same license on another machine in the future. With a retail license I think you can do that. (like replace a PC with a totally new one and use the same key)

Guys look up IEEE if you know a student. $32 membership to IEEE you can get upto 8 windows 8 keys for free (think you can get windows 7 too). If they dont have W7 then check out ACM they are very similar and have free software with membership fee .

Complains are coming in. As always no sales on AVS outside of the designated classifieds area. Several recent posts have been removed.

 

Thanks
