Windows 8 upgrade to be downloadable

/ 7 years ago

We have typically become accustomed to DVD installations of Windows operating systems over the years or for the more advanced USB Flash Drive installations. It seems now Windows has recognized the slightly aged nature of this mechanism and consequently has developed an alternative method of installing and upgrading to Windows 8 from an existing Windows operating system. Requiring apparently only 11 clicks to install Windows 8 from a Windows 7 based upgrade package which installs itself, is downloaded of the web and comes pre-loaded with your product key to save you some hassle.

But Windows still recognizes some people, particularly those with bandwidth caps or poor download streams may still want to use the old method of DVD installation so they will still be providing those. And of course those installing Windows 8 onto a new system with no operating system will need the disc too.
