Last week, I wiped one of my laptops and prepped it up for a dual boot system. While installing an OEM copy of MS Office 2007 Home & Student on the windows partition, I saw a passage on the EULA that says I can install and activate it on a maximum of three devices (yeah, I know too few read EULA's anymore). Now this got me confused since I've known for the longest time that OEM copies are valid only for one device.

 

So would it be safe to install Office on my desktop? Anyone tried this before? Will save me the burden of saving up for Office 2010 if it's possible to do so although I'm quite fine running LibreOffice on the desktop. I used OpenOffice before that.

Yes, student editions have different licences than DSP (oem) editions. Whatever it says, is true, go on install it.
