Then there's the free upgrade of Windows 10!
|Windows 10 for all!|
While the release of Windows 10 is fast approaching, the hype and marketing game of Microsoft is getting more and more serious. They just announced yesterday that they are planning to give people with pirated copies of its software for free that will combat piracy in China. That's their goal and it is a great news!
However, there are also reports made by The Verge that Microsoft is going to provide those who do not have genuine OS a way to upgrade to Windows 10, but they have to go to Windows Store in order to get a genuine upgrade. In my interpretations that could mean that you still need to buy the license from the store.
Now it's a little bit more confusing. Hopefully, they will clear this thing out in the next few days.
