Microsoft released flash drives with licensed Windows 11 for $139

The Windows 11 operating system was released last October, and only now Microsoft has decided to release a “packaged” version of the operating system on physical media. They can already be found on various online trading platforms. For example, in the US, they can be purchased at the BestBuy store.

On physical media, Windows 11 is distributed in Home and Pro editions. The first costs $139.99, the second $199.99. For the same prices, Microsoft offers to purchase digital licenses of these operating systems. The boxed version of Windows 11 includes a USB drive with the OS Distribution Kit and an operating system activation key.

While most users probably won’t opt ​​for the physical method of installing a new operating system, it’s always a good thing to have an alternative. Microsoft hasn’t abandoned the method of installing its operating systems from physical media for many years. And as a bonus, owners of physical copies of Windows 11 will get a very attractive USB drive and elegant packaging.

By the way, there is a way to save money by buying a digital version of Windows 11. Amazon’s online store currently sells a licensed copy of Windows 10 Pro for $85 ($45 off). After purchase, you can upgrade to Windows 11 for free.
