    Windows 7 including SP1 still fits on a DVD so I can't see W10 never fitting on one. There are larger capacity USB sticks available as well. I think if MS are going to go the route of continuous updates then Windows won't just grow and grow, some things will inevitably be removed as they are superseded.

    IMHO, installing from a USB thumb drive is the way to go. Faster than doing the install from optical media. Also easy to redo if a new image comes out. No size restrictions too.

    There's the format option of the ISO, also. ESD format is about 22% smaller than the standard WIM format. That's about 800MB based on current ISO sizes. There's room for growth on a 4.7GB DVD. Then there's the 9.4GB double-sided. Kinda rare, can't see that happening.

    Who knows, maybe some day we'll all just "Boot from the Cloud"! Run the whole OS from somewhere-out-there......... spooky!

    Oh, I agree! But a lot of older boxes, like mine, (only 3 yrs old), wouldn't know how to boot from a thumb if you kicked the BIOS in the butt! It'll do USB, but only ext HDD.

    I hope not. While I'm not against MS going down the subscription route (as long as the pricing structure is sensible of course) I want my OS running on my hardware, I spend time and money on my rig to get the most out of it, not to have someone else's server slow me down!

    To paraphrase a LifeLock commercial, "The hackers and data thieves!" will be so ecstatic they'll totally lose bladder control!

    Yep I get no less than 5 emails a week to verify my limited PayPal account or to verify my Mastercard on my PayPal account (I do not have a Mastercard) now they will not need to use email for that.

    The forced updates would turn me off. You would be forced to auto update anytime Microsoft wants you to and you couldn't hide updates. I could see that being an issue with some hardware drivers. Like some, you wouldn't be able to wait tell Saturday to install the updates unless you some how block Microsoft updates.
