Obviously no one can predict the future but answer based on past experience

When you get an own license it's tied to the motherboard.

If you upgrade it with a better upgrade only version (retail version) does it become a full license or is it still oem?

Hi :) 

It should be exactly the same as with 7....

IF you buy an upgrade ...that does NOT magically turn it into a Full License....

You still have an OEM License AND an UPGRADE license...

I imagine 8 will be precisely the same as MS are not exactly known for their generosity...

All the best Brett :)
