Windows For All.

PcNews1

When Microsoft lifted the lid on Windows 10 late last year they revealed a number of intriguing facts surrounding their newest operating system, the most intriguing of all perhaps being that Windows 10 will, for it’s first year at least, be freely available to all Windows 7 and 8 users who wish to upgrade, and when Microsoft say “free to all” they really mean it, as a spokesman for the company has confirmed that “free to all” includes anyone running a pirated version of either Windows 7 and 8 as well as legit.
“Anyone with a qualified device can upgrade to Window 10, including those with pirated copies of Windows. We believe customers over time will realize the value of properly licensing Windows and we will make it easy for them to move to legitimate copies.”
The move marks a considerable change in tack for Microsoft who had until now been unwavering in their anti-piracy stance, however it appears the ever changing landscape that is the OS market has somewhat forced their hand.

    1. Yeah I found it very odd to but above all else fishy. Whether you have a legitimate copy of Windows or not, I’d be waiting at least a few months after 10’s release before updating.
