If I get the OEM, can I still uninstall from one machine and go to the other without having to pay extra or whatever?

Basically, is the licensing the same between OEM and Retail?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong - OEM is a single license for that PC only, once it is installed. That is what I read from a Dell PC that I setup recently and I had read somewhere that when someone tried to install a copy on another PC it wouldn't validate online. The regular license allows for 3 installations before you need to call customer support.

I believe you're right. Here's a link from Microsoft for others that might have had the same question as me.
