Games for windows

I sincerely apologise if this question has been answered elsewhere, but I am a complete noob to GFW.

Taking this as an example, if i was to download it, can only MY gamertag recieve achievements on it, or is it like xbox, where anyone who uses the same PC can? (I.e. Buy keflings on gamertag A, gamertag B can also play it on the same xbox).

I'm asking because my boyfriend and I share a computer. And it seems a royal waste of money to buy stuff twice.

I hope this makes sense, and thanks for helping me guys x

It doesnt look like it.. I bought viva pinata for my girlfriend to play with MS points on my tag, but it wouldnt let her play it on her tag.

GFW on your computer functions just like the marketplace on xbox Live. If you buy a Arcade game, you can't log into another profile and play it. Even if the profile is on the same console that you bought it with. It's really annoying and all, but that's the way Microsoft works. I'm pretty sure I heard a small work around, which involves changing the admin. rights to the profile you want, so others can use it, but it may be more work than it's worth. Try looking that up. Hopefully that's somewhat helpful. xP
