Is it possible to backup your actual programs to an EHDD and use on other PC's?
I know this is an odd question but my girlfriends mother has hit a bit of a dilemma.
You see her laptop is running Windows 7 and her laptop is a little on the slow side as it's three years old and she's contemplating whether or not to get a new laptop or desktop. But the programs she is using cost her in total of about £300 so she doesn't want to change her laptop and have to buy those licences again...
We were talking about backing up files and such things but ( and this is where Linux also comes in ) is it possible to actually back your programs up and use them on another computer with the same platform?
I.e if you're using Ubuntu ( which I am ) and I want to change my distro but the DRM only allows me to use one O/S, can I backup the currently used program onto an External Hard Drive?
The same goes for Windows 7 to Windows 7?
