I could be *completely* wrong about this, but .... my understanding of 
the Rev license is that it applies to a person, not to a machine.  And 
therefore that as long as only I use it, and so long as I only use one 
copy at a time, I am OK to have Rev installed on my laptop, and my 
desktop, and my work machine, and my Mac-mini, and my son's laptop and 

Occasionally I bend the rules, and use both the laptop and the desktop 
copies at the same time .... don't tell anyone at Rev :-) :-)
