Comment on "Most Macs Ever Sold in a Quarter"

...not to mention that you will be only able to install a copy twice.

I had a hard time believing that, especially considering that most tech support calls appear to have reinstallation as step two, between restarting and waving a dead chicken. Is there a source for that?

What I did find, googling for 'install a copy twice', is that reinstalls with different hardware triggers the lockout, but even then one can call, and wait on hold to talk to a person to reactivate it. Still not fun, but reinstalling with the same hardware does not trigger this, and even triggered, this doesn't require a secondary license.
