[WIN8] Windows 8

I got the Windows 8 $39.00 down load from the Microsoft web site. Is that a OEM license or can it that be used on another computer?

Upgrade license for Win8Pro not just Win 8.
Can be used on any computer that has XP , Vista , or 7 on it already .
OEM license can be used on bare metal .
This »www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ··· bmit=ENE
is a good description of the different versions .

Once you install the Upgrade, I believe you are limited to using it on only that installed computer.

question is whether user can move installation to a different PC (and use it solely on moved one). Answer is yes: upgrade is not OEM, but retail version.
