Microsoft decided to not off a full retail version. You will find builders and OEM versions at the usual outlets. Support is no longer included with the versions you buy.

Thanks for that I had seen the other versions for sale but I do not want to upgrade from Windows 7. I expect all the future OS's will be the same. What a strange thing to do.

The OEM version is the only full version I see today.

I can't guess why you can't find it but I see it at newegg.com, amazon.com and of course, Fry's.
