Windows 10 Home has a blue theme, and Windows 10 Pro edition is in purple color. The design is very minimalistic, with only Desktops (Official Hero Windows 10 wallpaper and open Start Menu) shown on the front of the packaged. It’s pretty different from the colorful Windows 8 package, and unlike its predecessor, it shows exactly what Windows 10 looks like when you install the system for the first time.

Besides regular, disc packages, Microsoft also revealed even more simplistic packages for USB copies of Windows 10. These versions are also blue and purple themed, with only flat Windows logo on the package.

The word is spreading around the internet that these packages might be the last Windows retail packages we’ll see from Microsoft, because the company reportedly plans to release further Windows’ only in digital form for downloading from the official site. Also, these retail versions of Windows 10 won’t be available on July 29th, so you won’t be able to buy them from day one.

But if you’re not a collector, and you’ve reserved your free copy of Windows 10 via Get Windows 10 app for Windows 8 and Windows 7, you don’t have to worry about the release of retail versions, as you’ll get your new operating system right on time.
