Microsoft Windows 10 not free: pirate version, XP, Vista users wouldn’t get it  

Microsoft has said that it is not going to offer free upgrades to Windows 10 for the people who are using either pirated version of Windows or using older versions like Vista or XP. Nonetheless it has said that people using the genuine Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 version will get the new update without paying a single penny.

Nonetheless people who were hoping to get the latest version for free, especially the ones using pirated version are aghast over this backtracking of sort from the Redmond based tech giant. There is no denying the fact that this backtracking is not new from the largest software company in the world and as far as the forthcoming Windows version is concerned.

Though the company has been making such promises for the last few months, it announced that any registered users of its Insiders beta version of Windows 10 will get a free upgrade to the full version when it is released in July. But before long the company will make it only for those people upgrading from Windows 7 or 8 will get a free upgrade.windows-10 menu

Later a top executive in the Redmond company, Gabriel Aul, launched a series of tweets, claiming that anyone “running a prerelease build connected with a registered MSA (Microsoft Account)” will remain activated on the final build of Windows 10. Over the weekend, Microsoft again changed the original blog post to remove the part about remaining activated.

On the other hand, Microsoft has said that users who are not in the Insiders program will be able to get Windows 10 for the first year it’s available for free, but only if they are running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. it later updated it’s blog post again yesterday and said that those who came into the Insiders programme from anything other than a genuine Windows 7 or 8.1 build will not be able to get a free copy of Windows 10 RTM once it’s available.
