Microsoft Windows 10 free for people using older pirated/ original versions in China

This is going to be a great news for millions and millions of people using Microsoft’s pirated Windows versions. The Redmond based tech giant has said that it is going to offer free Windows 10 to all people using Microsoft’s operating system on their devices.

The company used to charge substantial amount of money from every person even if he or she had bought the older version. But now Microsoft seems to have become very generous to all people, even those who have been using pirated versions. Though the announcement is limited to China alone at the moment, but you should expect similar level of generosity from the company in other parts of the world including India.

Microsoft seems to be warming up to Chinese market. This seems to be its boldest effort to attract Chinese consumers in a big way. A recent survey in China suggests that at least three-quarters of all PC software is not properly licensed there.microsoft spartan internet explorer

While talking about this aspect of Chinese market, Terry Myerson, who runs Microsoft’s operating systems unit said, “We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10”. He went on to add that the plan is to “re-engage” with the hundreds of millions of users of Windows in China.

The latest operating system from Microsoft Windows 10 is going to be launched across the world sometime “this summer”. Microsoft has already made it clear that it would offer free upgrades to Windows 10 for users of Windows 7 or later in an attempt to hold onto users and make up for lost revenue by selling services such as Office over the Internet.

Microsoft has already roped in with biggest PC/laptop maker Lenovo to help roll out Windows 10 in China to current Windows users, Myerson said. The software giant is also offering Windows 10 through security company Qihoo 360 Technology Co and Tencent Holdings Ltd.
