I read on another forum that a man that sets puters up for customers called MS and talked to a license specialist and they told him you could move it to a new computer if the old one was damaged etc. but that you would have to call in to MS to do it.
However another wrote that the EULA did not read that way so time may tell slightly different than now.
" it looks like the UI has gotten even worse." It makes things harder to get around and it seems their developers are of a totally different mind set than their customers.
Windows 8 indicates the same thinking and mind set that they have.
