    Win 10 is still activated and says it will stay active forever (on this machine) But we'll see about that.... without teeth I can't bite myself when All of a sudden I'm locked out of my op-sys
    You can gum yourself then.
    See, there is a work around for everything.

    I'm not even sure if Win 10 Retail will be available on DVD?

    At the moment you can download Pro Retail for an eye-watering £190.

    Pro OEM DVD £110.

    Or get a Retail USB on the 17th.
    Have a shop about mate, there are cheaper places.

    That's for the USB not the download.

    The USB pre-orders are currrently cheaper than the download you can buy now.

    Oh yeah I understand that, I'd just rather order a USB cheaper than downloading it. I don't see any point in paying more for something if you don't have to, unless you really can't wait 8 days for it!

    I'm not planning on buying the retail anytime.

    Just had a look at Scan and they haven't got the download, plus I noticed their OEM is more expensive than you can get elsewhere.

    I'll be picking up a retail copy, I quite like their prices at the moment so I might order one.
