Win 7 Retail versions stopped shipping 30 Oct 2013

Recommended Posts

Just read last night that MicroShaft just announced that they have stopped shipping retail packaged versions of Win 7 as of the end of October 2013, so what's in the retail channels now is all there is.

 

The OEM versions will continue to be sold UFN...but those versions are permanently tied to the hardware they are first installed on, and multiple reinstalls/transfers to new machines may not be possible.

 

Given the major butt pain Win 8 users are having with FSX and P3D on Win 8/8.1, I ordered another copy of Win 7 from Newegg when I read the article...

 

Regards

I did this a few months ago as they do the same thing every time a new OS is released, so I have two copies.
