So, because Bluebeam have decided to stop making the Mac version of their software, (BOOOO) I have to run Windows for work.

Anyone know of a good reasonably-priced source of Windows 10 licences? The full retail price is...um...bracing, for those of us used to "free" OS software

I would suggest CrossOver, but the (few) reviews there say it's incompatible. I'd try it out anyways in demo mode.

Would that be Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Workstation, Windows 10 Education, Windows 10 Education Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise, or Windows 10 LTSC? Come on, man, you need to be specific!

Just watch out, some of those legit "cheap" windows licenses are anything but that. Most of them are for the Asian market, office deployment scenarios. Far too many horror stories of people buying the $10 keys only to get burned. Better off to just suck it up, or buy an OEM copy.

I've read, that if you have a Windows 7 license you can still upgrade for free to Windows 10. I haven't tried but it lately but if you have a 7 license, it is worth a shot.
