Change in Windows Vista licensing terms

(Ed Bott's Blog)
Microsoft's new Software License Terms says that you may "reassign the license to another device one time" or "make a one time transfer of the software, and this agreement, directly to a third party." That limitation on retail licenses is a remarkable change. Previously, a retail license could be removed from one computer and reinstalled on another with no limits. Now, you get to reinstall one time and one time only.
