windows 8 retail box version


I am using linux. I want to buy windows 8 pro to dual boot with linux. Is there a boxed version of windows 8 pro ? Or can i download windows 8 pro full version by paying through online store in India. All my search leads to upgrade version. What about full version ?? The online microsoft store for India ( says down for maintainence.  And none of the online store like has windows 8. They are only selling laptops and mobile with windows 8 pre loaded. So is microsoft not selling windows 8 to individuals ? Do i have to buy a new Computer to get windows 8 ? BTW, I am in India.

with regards,
where is the official link ?
and i am really confused why upgrades are so much highlighted and a full version is hard to find !
