Is it OK to use OEM Windows on your own PC? Don't ask Microsoft | Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report | ZDNet.com

So, if I build a system - install Windows 7 OEM - sell the computer to my wife for $1 - I'm okay?

BTW: I love Bott's "Windows 7 Inside/Out." Good resource.

I'd imagine most people who purchase OEM versions (which is exactly what I'm running, as a matter of fact) couldn't care less about MS's opinion on the legality of it.

Questions of legality are always iffy - where do you draw the line. But I think in this case, the M$ lawyers got caught in their own underwears.
