    If you wait a few days they should be available.

    Nothing wrong with getting it online, save the ISO file, then burn a DVD or USB stick. You'll still have the ISO in case you need to re-install.

    I don't think there will be a "full" version. Just an OEM version and upgrades in store. This is ridiculous though. Microsoft should release one version from October till January for $20, then after January it will be $100. That one version should be a "full" version not upgrade or OEM.

    I think it's ridiculous too. I've given up and gone and ordered an OEM version DVD which will arrive on Monday and I am hoping the personal user licence thing I've read about it true.
