One licence will allow you to install the software on two PCs operated by you (e.g. your home PC and office PC) so long as only one copy is in use at any one time.  The licence is assigned to the purchaser; it is not possible to share one licence between two different people. The licence is not tied to the operating system platform as long as the software is available for both Windows and Mac e.g. Photoshop .
