    Retail version of 10 pro


    I've noticed that retail versions of 10 are available, do the purchasers have the same rights to chop and change as was possible with older Windows?

    You'll have to elaborate on what you mean by "rights to chop and change..."
    As of this moment, there is no difference whatsoever between an upgrade W10 and a retail W10, with the exception that you may install a retail version on any capable machine you wish, whereas, the upgrade version is limited to the machine it was upgraded from.
