So, I was digging around in a recently leaked build of Windows 7 Home Premium and ran across a very interesting clause in the Microsoft Software License Terms which hints towards the possibility that Microsoft are going to be offering a family pack licensing plan which covers up to three computers in your household if you purchase a special “family pack” of Windows 7 Home Premium......

Not necessarily, Australian's can get Office Student and Teacher edition which is licensed to 3 different computers, so there is still a possibility.
