Mathematica 8 arrived yesterday (that is, I downloaded the 1 GB disk image which I get for free through Premier Service). I'm just starting the drawn-out process of moving from a 2007-vintage MacBook running Leopard to a newly purchased MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard, doing this one app at a time rather than via a batch "migration" in the hope of leaving behind all the cruft that may have accumulated in the older MacBook during three previous system upgrades. If I install and activate Mathematica 8 on the new MacBook Pro (only), will that somehow disable or deactivate the copy of Mathematica 7 that's been left behind on the old MacBook (both Macs talk to our household WiFi LAN)? Or will it maybe just block one of them from starting up any time the other is running? I'd like to have an overlap period during which the older machine is still usable while the newer machine gets up to speed.
