Pirated versions of Windows which switch to Windows 10 remain illegal
At the beginning of the week out interesting news that surely bring joy to many users of pirated copies of Windows. Microsoft has commented that even they can switch to Windows 10. Great news! Cheers around the forums and sites. No, not the statement is false, but the results are slightly different than expected.
Microsoft spokesman confirmed the information, but add a little more clarification:
“Although pirated copies of Windows will receive updates for Windows 10, it will not change the unlicensed status. These copies are not distributed by Microsoft. No license and no support from Microsoft or a trusted partner. If the device is not licensed before the update, it will continue to be so even after it.”
PC sales are still unsatisfactory, and the trend is not so good, but Windows remains a major source of revenue for Microsoft. If a user uses the unlicensed version, this naturally affects the company’s revenue. According to Reuters about 75% of computers in China using pirated software.
What does the use of unlicensed version of Windows 10? We can not say with precision, since there is no official information from Microsoft. Currently, if your version of Windows is pirated, has several consequences – desktop black, and even after rebooting, it returns to this image. Users continue to receive important updates for security, but not the additional updates. Applications run normally, but you should not assume that this is a Windows 10 will be the case. Perhaps it is part of the plan of Microsoft – update, after which some of the interesting features of the new system will become inactive. We can only guess, but certainly we will have more details later this year. Windows 10 came in the summer in 190 countries of the 111 languages.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/03/22/pirated-versions-of-windows-which-switch-to-windows-10-remain-illegal/https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/sz_microsoft_windows10.jpg?fit=640%2C440https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/sz_microsoft_windows10.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSMicrosoft,WindowsAt the beginning of the week out interesting news that surely bring joy to many users of pirated copies of Windows.
