Just a quick question...
If i get the retail full windows 7 pro/ultimate can i use the 32 bit dvd on one computer and the 64 bit on another computer?
Are there separate licenses or are they the same?

No. This is only one license because the package comes with one product key but the retail gives you the option to install either the 32bit or 64bit whereas the OEM versions you get only one.

There are family packs available that come with 3 separate product keys that can be installed on 3 different computers.
