In my case, I prefer using a "retail" version. I can change my whole PC without fear of having activation issues. I can even get a replacement disk if my copy gets damaged.
Agreed, that is what was so confusing about the Windows 8 licensing. What if I wanted to upgrade parts of my computer with the Windows 8 Personal License?
So this Windows 8.1 Full Version is just like what we remember with Windows 7?
And in terms of a legal standpoint, isn't the OEM license ONLY supposed to be used for computers that you create for other people. Dell for example? This is what was so confusing about Windows 8 OEM / Personal Use license. If I get the personal use license, can I use it for business related tasks?
