Default Windows 8 Licensing Terms

In his blog, Ed Bott shares an excellent summary of licence changes associated with Windows 8

Windows 8 - New License Terms

QUOTE: What's changed in Microsoft's radical new license agreements for Windows 8? I've got full details about how you can transfer
Windows to a new PC, downgrade rights, and who qualifies for upgrades.

Iíve had a chance to inspect the new, radically revised Microsoft license terms in advance of their October release. Earlier this
week, I noted the two big surprises: All of the agreements are written in plain language thatís surprisingly easy to understand,
and Windows 8 will, for the first time ever, include a new Personal Use License that explicitly permits retail customers to install
and run OEM System Builder software.
