    You do need to worry after years your hardware is unable to handle all latest upgrades. Don't you need to buy a new machine with latest Windows?

    I wonder future Windows will be cheaper!!!???

    There is no need to buy anything in the above situation as the upgrade is free.

    If you want to move 10 from one machine to another in the future,
    then it is wise to buy a retail copy.
    Yes! This appears to be one of the reasons.

    Yes, you would have to buy a new machine with windows 10 on it.

    I think this would mostly be true for lap top owners as its not easy to change all the part's inside of it.

    If you have a desk top, you basically have no excuse to buy a whole new machine as

    everything inside is easily replaceable.

    I've been using my current machine for over a half a decade which came with Windows 7 Home Premium, upgraded in 2012 to Windows 8 and to Windows 10 now.
    Half a decade, three or four amazing OS's, all for the lump sum of about 40 bucks! That's a helluva deal!
    (But I bought Windows 10 anyway!)

    I think the last dozen or so comments pretty much affirms MS's clever marketing plan; if you 'read between the lines'!

    1. No, I'm not! Why would you think that? I don't know whether to be offended or just laugh it off. Guess I'll just laugh.

    2. If you'd said "those who don't have one or may need one more', I would have agreed with you. But you said:

    I would suggest that every of us to buy a full retail windows 10 key now or later at ON SALE price if possible. If windows 10 is the last version, I wonder that MS will still sell the current prices.
    3. Microsoft has already changed their licensing agreement, so that's not likely to happen again in the near future. You should be able to read the EULA and know exactly what your money will buy and how you may install or transfer your license. Here's ZDNet's writeup about the Windows 10 license for consumers.

    I believe I gave pricing for full Retail versions and said the OEM version can be had for a little less. So, yeah, I know the difference between OEM and Retail.

    It would be nice, but I just don't think it's likely that Microsoft will be putting Windows 10 full version on sale any time soon, since they've already given everyone who has a qualifying copy of Windows 7 or 8.1 a free upgrade. Most likely anyone who will need to buy Windows 10 (whichever version they choose) will be required to pay full price.
