KMS VS MAK or What are the Differences Between Them ?KMS is set on the specified host system , the system will activate all MS Office 2010 client installation, without the need for every computer to connect to Microsoft for product activation.Usually the enterprises with a lot of computers (more than 25) adopts this way.

The KMS advantage is that once you have set up a KMS host, KMS client can automatically find the host in the DNS and according to it to  activate itself. Only need one KMS host to activate Windows and all Office client products. Entered only once a KMS host key and activate the KMS host can activate not only Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and can also activate Visio, Project and InfoPath.

But KMS activation is not permanent activation,the computer can be activated ( in the authorized state) only 180 days.After that  KMS client will need to contact the KMS host and reactivate. Then  the client can get 180 days again. If you have not reactivate the computer will enter the 30 days grace period.After the 30 days grace period you can not login the RFM.

MAK is short for Multiple Activation Key.In addition to each key has a different number of activations, the principle is same with the retail version.For example, an enterprise has purchased 50 sets of Office 2010 .MAK key can activate 50 computers installed Office 2010. Clients connect to Microsoft's activation server to activate the product.When activate each set of products, Microsoft will automatically deduces one from 50 counts  in the activation server .

The MAK will permanently activate the computer. Once activated, the computer does not need to re-activate unless significant hardware replacement, such as replacing the hard disk.The activation method does not need to re-activate every 180 days.
