Microsoft has completely rewritten its license agreements for Windows 8

 







For Windows 8, Microsoft has completely rewritten its license agreements. For the first time now they allow retail customers to legally install cheaper OEM versions.

Usually license agreements are lengthy and written in a specific style, using specific terms which very often not easy to understand.

Now English-language versions of Windows 8 are written easy-to-understand language.

Currently, Microsoft sells Windows in three packages: retail upgrades, OEM System Builder packages, and full retail licenses (aka Full Packaged Product, or FPP). Microsoft’s System Builder license expressly prohibits the use of this software by end-user customers, who are expected to pay significantly higher prices for an FPP license.

So some quotations from the license agreements below:

OEM

The software is licensed, not sold. Under this agreement, we grant you the right to install and run one copy only on the computer with which you acquired the software (the licensed computer)...

RETAIL UPGRADE

We do not sell our software or your copy of it – we only license it. Under our license, we grant you the right to install and run that one copy on one computer (the licensed computer), for use by one person at a time, but only if you comply with all the terms of this agreement. Typically, this means you can install one copy of the software on a personal computer and then you can use the software on that computer.

PERSONAL USE LICENSE (SYSTEM BUILDER) FOR WINDOWS 8 PRO

We do not sell our software or your copy of it – we only license it.Under our license, we grant you the right to install and run that one copy on one computer (the licensed computer) as the operating system on a computer that you build for your personal use, or as an additional operating system running on a local virtual machine or a separate partition, subject to the restrictions outlined under “Are there things I’m not allowed to do with the software?”

That last license type represents the first time Microsoft has formally acknowledged the right of its end-user customers to install Windows 8 on a new PC they build themselves, or to install it in a virtual machine or on a separate partition.
