Question for the graphic guys - obviously you guys have some pretty elaborate and expensive programs on your PCs - Photoshop, Fireworks, etc.
Since the software is licensed, what do you do when it's time for a new computer? I have CS3 and want to get a new computer but am afraid of the costs associated with buying a new sofware license.
What do you guys do that have multiple programs?

Do you have setup files? If so then just reinstall on the new machine. I dont know what the actual rules are but if you bought CS3 then IMO its yours to install on your computers for the rest of your life.
I have CS5 installed on my desktop and laptop. With my laptop i originally had it installed on WinXP but after i upgraded the OS to Win7 i installed it again. So technically i have installed it 3 times even though an individual is typically granted 2 machine activations.

With CS3, you actually get two licenses.
Most people never try it, but it works. It will let you install the license on 2 machines.
Also, CS3 has the neat ability to "deactivate" the license, so that you may install it on another machine.
You should be fine, just run any CS3 program, and you'll find the option in the help menu.
