    It depends on which Windows7 you buy; if you buy one with more than one license, then you can install it on all.

    most windows 7 are only installable on one computer, however i think there is a triple-licensed one. You can probably find it at circuit city/tiger direct (as they are the same people)

    You get 1 licence with Windows 7, if you try to enter the key again it will say its already in use. There was a family pack deal (5 licences) but I think that's ended now.

    I'm just throwing it out there....
    But I've used my XP Pro CD (says single use) on 4 of the computers in my house xD

    I didn't do any special steps to make it happen, either.

    Maybe something's changed. I still wouldn't buy a single license just because I told you that, either.

    generally speaking. All versions of Windows 7 contain both the 32 and 64 bit setup

    OEM's are generally one or the other, like Led posted.
