In just about two weeks from now Microsoft is going to finally release Windows 10 online and through retail stores. The company is yet to share the retail packaging for the new iteration of its operating system but the Windows 10 retail packaging has already been leaked online. It’s highly likely that this might be the last retail packaging that Microsoft ever creates for Windows.
The box art for Windows 10 seems rather simple, it’s much more modern and cleaner than the Windows 8 box art which had a big Windows logo at the center.
Microsoft is also going to be offering USB drive copies of Windows 10 through retail stores, they will be packaged in small boxes that simply have blue or purple Windows logos.
This might be the final retail packaging for Windows only because the company is moving its operating system to a “service model,” which means in the future it will rely solely upon the internet to deliver major updates and iterations.
Windows 10 box copies won’t be available on July 29th, that’s when the update is rolled out online, but a few weeks after initial launch the box copies will be available from retail stores. They would certainly make for a good collectors item.
