Microsoft has confirmed that a Windows 7 family pack will be available that will allow multiple computers in a...
household to download the operating system.
Family pack versions of Windows 7 can be installed on three computers in a single household.
Microsoft earlier declined to comment on the discovery reported by Canadian blogger Kristan Kenney, who found a reference to a "family pack" in a Windows 7 Home Premium licence agreement.
According to Kenney, the installation and use rights state, "If you are a Qualified Family Pack User, you may install one copy of the software marked as Family Pack on three computers in your household for use by people who reside there."
