Today Microsoft did something most never imagined possible, it announced that the upgrade to Windows 10 on your PC will be completely free, even if your device isn’t running a genuine copy of Windows Vista/7/8 etc.
The move is almost unprecedented, as it will allow millions of users who obtained their version of Windows unlawfully to leave the dark side, and most importantly leave behind the pesky “Windows is not genuine” message. Microsoft haven’t hid their intentions for this move, simply it’s to get Windows 10 to the millions of Chinese users running pirated copies of the OS, which make up the largest percentage of unlawful Windows users.
“We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10,” he said in a telephone interview with Reuters. The plan is to “re-engage” with the hundreds of millions of users of Windows in China, he said, without elaboration.
Way to go Microsoft!
