    Why is there no Retail version yet or a proper OEM version as the version from the likes of Dell just give you the update, like we have !!!

    Are we all just Guiney Pigs here, doing the testing work for Microsoft ? Then after our hard work testing and finding all the flaws for Microsoft they will release a version to industry ?

    Go online Amazon, Newegg. The list goes on and on. If you don't want to buy the whole OS, then just buy a Retail Key.

    Many computer stores sell their old notebooks with preinstalled Windows 8.1. But two weeks ago I bought a new notebook with Windows 10 preinstalled. So there are preinstalled OEM versions available.
    Where is the OEM key stored ?
