That would indeed work much better. Just add the twenty to your order, no big deal.

Microsoft could gain an extra profit by selling a flash drive with there product.
It will be like hitting two birds with a single arrow for them.

Yep, the cost of a thumbdrive, no matter how you look at it, would be more expensive, then a DVD

Rumor: Windows 7 to be sold on USB drives - Ars Technica

That's not true, if you post an article from someone else in any forum, you'll have to provide the source link with it, quote it and post only part of the article, not the whole thing.

You just can't post links for torrents or illegal download links.
