    Bundled apps and an upgrade.

    Hi all,

    A quick question with regards to licensing. Not too sure if this would be considered as wrong.

    We purchased a room of imacs and they obviously came with the bundled ilife 06 and comic life. We are looking to upgrade the machines to leopard soon as was wondering if we would be breaking licensing agreements on these bundled apps. I think not as the machine it came with is still the same machine but the OS they install on has been upgraded.

    What would your point of view be?

    You may upgrade the OS by paying to the Leopard upgrade, and you can still used the bundled apps. You cannot upgrade the bundled apps without purchasing upgrades for those (ie iLife 08, etc).

    Thanks. Thats good to hear. I would upgrade the bundled app with a purchase although i was slightly disappointed to find that comic life and the big bang board games were not part of the leopard installation.
