Windows 10 to be sold on USB drives

Windows 10 to be sold on USB drives

Microsoft has officially confirmed what we reported a few days ago – customers will be able to purchase Windows 10 on a USB flash drive. Thus certain end users who prefer to have the latest edition of Windows but lack a physical DVD drive will be able to install and use the new OS with no problems whatsoever.

The fact that you will get your copy of Windows 10 on a USB flash drive will not make the new OS cheaper – quite the contrary! In the United States Windows 10, no matter how the OS comes, will sell for the same price as Windows 8.1.

Thus the new OS will come in three ways – as a free upgrade for users of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, on a physical DVD disk and on a USB flash drive. The new way of distribution is in unison with Microsoft’s new policies and we have to admit it is more convenient than before.

Windows 10 will be released on July 29 but will come in waves so you may not be able to get your copy on this day.
