I think you need to review the terms of the agreement at that first link you sent, for Microsoft Campus.
Those renew yearly, and can only be installed *ONCE*. According to that site you sent, FAQ #4, they even
advise you to run AntiVirus to protect your computer, as you are not even entitled to REinstall it.
Apples-and-oranges - I can install and re-install this on those 2 computers as often as I wish, and no yearly license fee.
