Windows 10 likely to come in a pen drive and not in DVD

It is no secret that Windows 10 Microsoft is hoping to make a clean break from the past. For example, this is going to be the first Windows that Microsoft would give away for free to individual aka home user. Windows 10 is also likely to be the first operating system from Microsoft that will be sold in a pen drive instead of the usual DVDs.

According to a listing at Canadian website, the Windows 10 may have a name like “Microsoft Win Home 10 32-Bit/64-Bit English 1 License Usb Flash Drive KW9-00016” with a cost of around Canadian $124 (around Rs.6,000).

Windows moving to pen drives is something that is pending for quite long. Compared to DVDs, pen drives are faster, easier to carry and store and overall a less hassled experience. In fact, DVDs seem to have become so outdated that Apple no longer puts DVD drives in its MacBooks. Similarly, many high end laptops and hybrids, including Microsoft’s own Surface, comes without a DVD drive.

Windows 10 will be launched on July 29. It will be available for free to all users who already have a genuine version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 on their computers. People who run pirated copies of Windows will also likely get the free Windows 10, albeit that won’t turn their Windows installation into the genuine copy.
