    If I build my next PC and want a copy of the OS.. I would have to get a DVD copy.. wouldn't I??
    Either that or download a copy using your current PC and buy the license key.

    I for one don't know someone with internet access that I can download an ISO.. so I would need to purchase a DVD.
    Years ago, Jeff, I got into the situation that I couldn't download a copy of my OS. I had a friend write it to DVD (or CD; can't remember) and mail it to me. I'm pretty sure someone here would do the same.

    I'm sure.. but I still would rather buy a copy.

    Oh, you'd have to buy the license. That is if you weren't "clean installing" the update from 7 or 8.1.

    I wouldn't mind doing that so I can transfer the copy from PC to PC.

    Maybe for a few members. I doubt anyone would do it for the thousands or more people who can't download Windows 10.

    Another distribution guess for new home built PC's.
    Download to a micro SD card via smartphone/tablet on wifi.
    There must be millions of android devices out there
    USB card readers are a few $$ each and you get a hard copy.

    That's assuming that people have the ability to download via android. I don't and I would need the DVD.

    I would have to go way over my data limit if I did it with my smartphone.

    Chrome OS is free. Android OS is free. Apple IOS is free. Various flavors of Linux are free. Is there really a market for a paid home operating system in the future? Look at how the others are distributed. Microsoft will have to do the same to survive. They have serious competition now.

I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions. So I'll start off: Latest security ...
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
