XP home 3 installs?

Seems to have read somewhere that Win XP Home edition can be installed up to 3 home computers. Am I right or am I going senile?

You are not right. I think it unfair to comment on your alternative suggestion.

WINDOWS XP, ie the operating system, then you are not correct. It's one copy/licence for each machine.

However with OFFICE XP, (and I believe all versions of MS Office), you can install it on a desktop and a laptop.

With OFFICE 2003, Student version, you could install on 3 home desktops, and with OFFICE 2007 you can do the same.

I write that without having checked it in detail, but I'm fairly sure I have all the above correct!

Good luck,
