"Sometimes I really regret that I did not live in those times when there was still so much that was new; to be sure enough much is yet unknown, but I do not think that it will be possible to discover anything easily nowadays that would lead us to revise our entire outlook as radically as was possible in the days when telescopes and microscopes were still new."

Can I transfer the software to another computer or user? You may transfer the software to another computer that belongs to you. You may also transfer the software (together with the license) to a computer owned by someone else if a) you are the first licensed user of the software and b) the new user agrees to the terms of this agreement. To make that transfer, you must transfer the original media, the certificate of authenticity, the product key and the proof of purchase directly to that other person, without retaining any copies of the software. You may use the backup copy we allow you to make or the media that the software came on to transfer the software. Anytime you transfer the software to a new computer, you must remove the software from the prior computer.

For Windows 8, if you buy it and you install it, you can reinstall and reactivate as many times as you want. Change the motherboard, put it on a whole different PC, whatever. Only one PC at a time.
And you don't have to 'revoke' anything. Just remove it from the old drive.

If it is preinstalled, then it is tied to that original hardware.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
