The disc only comes with one license so you would have to buy another to install on more than one.

The Beta though can be installed on multiple computers because you can keep getting keys from Microsoft. That's if you want to run the Beta of course. I have had no issues whatsoever (other than my own stupid fault)

Using Windows 7 x64 RC on my HTPC. I really like it and it runs fantastic on a Venice 3000+, 1 GB DDR and 7800GT. I will definitely be buying that pre-order to upgrade my main computer.

My only issue is that the taskbar may take some getting used to. I haven't figured out how to minimize a window from the taskbar when having two windows up (If two Firefox windows are up and I press on the FF icon)

The only way I know how to do that would be to click on the FF icon so the two small windows pop up, click on the one you want minimized and minimize it the normal way. They may still change this in the RTM; I have it on good authority that there is a new GUI and kernel that are not yet implemented in the betas of Windows 7, so the RTM will look and run different.

There is actually an option I just found that sets it up like Vista and XP. Separate taskbar instances of different windows. I don't remember the option now, but it's taskbar properties.

When you have more than one instance of firefox running - hover over or left click your ff icon in the taskbar until you see the large preview icons split up, right click on the one you want to minimize and click "minimize"

Oh yeah. Right click the Taskbar and go to Properties, and where it says "Taskbar buttons:" select "Never combine" from the drop down menu. Forgot about that

All the apps I use run fine for me on XP Pro so haven't moved to Windows 7.
