Pirates all over the world, who run a pirate version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 but dream about Windows 10 instead, can celebrate – Microsoft says that it will give away an upgrade copy for free even to the most piratical Chinese and Russian users.
It is not a secret that the Chinese are known for pirating everything, and the creators of copyrighted content have to approach the country very carefully. For example, China has official Hollywood films available online before they air in the US, ostensibly to fight piracy.
And now Microsoft brings good news for all pirates, including Chinese, who prefer not to pay for their content – the company is going to give away free upgrades of Windows 10 not only to the legal buyers of Windows 7 and Windows 8, but also to pirates.
Representatives of the company claimed that the plan was aimed at bringing the currently non-paying customers back on board. Microsoft has officially confirmed that it is going to upgrade all qualified personal computers, both genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10.
A couple months ago, Microsoft announced that free upgrades of Windows 10 would be provided to legitimate users of Windows 7 and Windows 8, but it didn’t mention that the pirates would also be given an official free pass.
Before the company clarified that this move refers to all pirates, wherever they live, the illegal Windows 7 and 8 users in the US were expected to pay top dollar for Microsoft’s newest operating system. This led to assumptions that the Western pirates could pretend to be from China to avoid paying. Anyway, most of the illegal users were expected to remain with their current OS until the release of a stable version of Windows 10.

|From what I can read Win 10 makes vista sound like a keeper and what will MS charge win 10 users after the giveaway ends. Keeping win Win 8.1 I like it works fine . . And how fast to windows 11 ? ?|
|looks like MAYBE micro$oft have FINALLY realised that their so called "protection/activation system" (stolen "technology anyway just like everything else of theirs) is so easily hackable & bypassable they they've simply given up on it???|
Let's see what happens...

|Well I am not sure where this information is coming from. Windows 10 will be free for a time period only because Microsoft will be pushing for sales of HoloLens. Windows 10 and MS HoloLens tech will work hand in hand. Win 10 is only free in hopes of getting Microsoft users to Purchase the HoloLens instead just Windows. If HoloLens gives us even a fraction of what they Display with there Trailers etc Microsoft is soon to become the Leader of at home Virtual Reality Hologram market. They already own the market on the most used OS. This is just a push to get there next Tech into every home.|
HoloLens Trailer can be seen here.
HaloLens information can be found here..
|Once again Microsoft show their shrewd business acumen, windows 10 is just another piece of useless technology added to the already overflowing market of useless technology. I guarantee windows 11 comes out shortly after 10 then they will stop the support on it so no updates or addons so it would be left as an inactive OS|

|to get final windows 10 it going nessesary erase windows 10 preview so after nothing it going free even with one year commitment to have it so activation need it to making that work from microsoft servers and what surprice they can get all your places where it from pirate windows.|
|Nothing is for free where Windoze is concerned and for a few more widgets more you too can have an updated windoze vista O/S now @10,I am sure they will love giving it out to pirates and everyone else as well to get them back in the fold and monitor them anytime they choose and in the hopes that they can then increase their market share of the evil empire even further in the Dow Jones.lmao (;^D>|
|I thought the Chinese were bringing out their own operating system so no one would buy windows anyway|
|Well nothing is free. Not even our privacy. Not sure of this, but windows 10 might be full of back doors.|
Most users have migrated to apple or android. So might be a legit grab at market share.
We need some advance users to direct windows 10 and weed out the prying eyes.
|The Chinese and Russians may have their own versions, but they will have little support.|
People want Windows because you can do more with it. Not just games, music apps, all sorts of drivers, business apps, smartphone compatibility, media players, music players, blu-Ray players, 3d apps etc.
With any new system you start at Germany Year Zero.
|I like the people who complain about windows while using it to post their complaints|
|@10 lol I am using Fedora only these days and have given up dual booting with windoze since XP,it is true that free Linux is not as polished as corporate windoze users expect since it is free the GUI`s are often too drab for windows users who pay large money to do the same things as Linux users do for free but users of Windows should all realize there is a price that comes with using Windows and that is total transparency from the corporate goon squad as well as having their hand in your pocket for every penny they can wring from the end -user as is the same with Apple,etc..|
|one would think that after the ethical hacking of 3 million windows based PC`s a few years or so ago by the windows corporation in order to fire break a virus threat (supposedly)people would be a little circumspect as to trusting the Empire.They did at the time quite easily drop a payload onto 3 million machines without the owners consent or knowledge as they have a right to under all windoze TOS explaining at great length that you may use their O/S for large money but never own it or any rights of use other than those they allow and they may do with it as they choose to anytime it may please them to do so.|

|@cggc Please refrain from making comments of garbled nonsense until you have mastered the English language.|
|most people use computers for entertainment, and accounting of some sort... I think its silly this game of who's OS is bigger and better,,, As much as I did not like windows 8.1, with a few mods it is just fine and even better now with touch screen multiple monitors! I like Zorin linux, but at the end of the day when I want shit to work without problems and features its windows all the way.... and if you by the way had ANY xp or pirated windows it was prehacked anyway.|

|@jed1421 thank you!|
|Windows 10 = the most NSA back-doored and information sucking to NSA databases in the world to date.|
Giving Russian and Chinese pirates an upgrade for FREE? Don't make me laugh. Nothing is free and everything comes with strings attached.
It's all about keeping people in those Geo-political areas - and considered a threat - using the most easily custom designed, backdoor remote accessed OS in the World. Using Windows is basically just being a part of an NSA//CIA bot-net.
Don't get me wrong, I like Windows myself - I use it for all my games, encoding and music, but when it comes to being secure, I use Linux - Whonix for 'bad' things and Debian//Fedora for everything else.
|Because it's going to be freemium expect a lot of microtransactions|
|what's the point of giving win 10 for free? it's gonna be free anyways after few week, even if MS don't like it LOL|

|The story is that M$ will give Win10 for free to users of win8/8.1. However as Carjacker has said..Win10 = ET phone 'ome. Windows 8/8.1 is already calling big bro.|
They are trying their hardest to spy on us any which way they can...To heck with our privacy. Who are the terrorists???
@ #9...it's not true that you can do more with windows..absolutely not true. Actually you can do the same and more with either Linux or MacOS...

|possibly they gining it to pirates....... so they can monitor them once windows 10 is installed on a pirates computer.. and they can backdoor shut said computers down.. NOTHING IS EVER FREE.. the usa will have an underlined reason for this... smells very fishy to me... kippers any1.............|

|Microsoft was never free there must be a catch behind, wonder what it is|
|Free it's free, like every thing else that is proclaimed "free". Now its time to worry.|
|IT'S NOT FREE!! Yeah you can d/l it and install it, BUT, if it's installed on a machine with a pirated windows OS, IT WILL SHOW UP AS UNREGISTERED, So it'll be exactly the same as installing win7 is now, you will still need a crack/ loader etc.|
|Pretty sad when they can even give it to me,hahahhaha|
|people still use ms?lol|
|Sounds like a major Big Brother Sting Operation to me since the NSA has been with Microsoft since XP, and I feel strongly that allowing Window's to do there so called security update's is when they pull everything they need to know from your system!!!!|
|I hear different stories. First they say NO it wont be free to pirates and then i hear it is . There bullshiting us.||
