    Just to clarify, you can install any "build" you want with your key. Use the word "version" and I think most people will think Home, Pro. etc. That is locked in by the Key. You can't activate Pro with a Home key etc.
    I agree BUT...The proper term is "Edition" when we talk about Home, Pro, Enterprise, S, Pro N, Home N etc...

    "Version" is the numbers 1511, 1607 (Anniversary Update), 1703 (Creators Update) etc...


    All these terms are confusing, I have to admit. :)

    I read some threads on the internet that states that it is a hardware enforced write protected thumb drive. Which is kind of great, as this way one can be certain that the media never gets altered by viruses or other malware. Bad though for those who would like to upgrade the setup files on it. :)

    Totally agree, and I stand corrected. It does get confusing, edition ? version?

    I pretty well have the same thoughts. Nice and clean, but soon outdated. If I had one, the case would come off at some point, to see if I could un write protect it.

    Well i guess it depends on how well the store knows it's inventory. When they receive a product it is the most current and the biggest factor is how long it sits in the retailer's inventory. One think is it won't be anything like Windows 7 which can take hours to update.

    Really a loaded question. It would be the current Creator's Update version that is available for download, that is what is on the shelves.

    It is like going up to someone who loves Mustangs and asking why they do not love Corvettes.
    Actually a very sensible question - it simply depends on age of stock in store.

    Well that would be very confusing. I would rather use SP1..n for the cumulative updates that are released, if you need some versioning. But even that would be confusing. A SP is just a collection of the latest fixes to the OS, just like the CUs are for Windows 10. Only difference is that CUs are relased very often while the older SP release cycle was really slow.
