    On your Mac you can install as many times as you want, and have as many installations on different hard drive partitions as you want, for as long as you want. There is no expiry to how often or when in the future you might do another installation.

    The only "restriction" is that the license for the US$19 "box" is for a single Mac. You are supposed to have a separate license for each Mac.

    I keep a second installation of Snow Leopard on a second partition. This lets me start up from the other partition to use disk maintenance apps and the ability to Start Up my Mac when I mess things up with the OS settings on the main partition (especially if I am experimenting with some coding in Terminal).
