    Windows 10 USB drives can now be pre-ordered, shipping date is...

    Later this month, Microsoft will begin selling Windows 10 and if you are in need of a key for the OS and want physical media, Amazon has you covered. Starting today, you can now pre-order the OS, both Home and Pro, but there is a catch.

    According to both the Home and Pro pages, the USB drive will not ship until August 16th. As expected the price for Home is $119.99 and the price for Pro is $199.99.
    Of course, most users will be receiving Windows 10 via the free update for Windows 7 or 8.1, but we do know that there will be some users who need a new key or who simply prefer to have physical media over buying it digitally from Microsoft.

If I pre-order Windows 10 on USB Flash Drive from Amazon and it arrives on the shipping date, will the Microsoft branded flash drive be write protected to prevent erasing the original installation files preinstalled by Microsoft?
Amazon won't charge for shipping on small, light, items. "The items just need to weigh less than 8 ounces, measure under 9x6x2 inches and cost less than $10 to qualify." Wow, you mean I don't have to pay $8.00 shipping on that $3.00 item!!...
