    Rumours are that Microsoft have plans to do away with full retail copies of it's next os. Now like with all other windows rumours I wouldn't hold your breath but still.....

    I'm wondering if MS is going this route so they won't have to offer any support.
    I'm sure the price will be more affordable compared to previous retail versions.
