Over the last few months there are lot of news comings for windows 10. Now Microsoft offering free windows 10 upgrades for windows 7, windows 8 and windows 8.1 and also for pirated and non-genuine windows users. Microsoft take this steps to stop piracy at once.

Free Windows 10 Upgrades
“Although non-Genuine PCs may be able to upgrade to Windows 10, the upgrade will not change the genuine state of the license,” the spokesperson said, meaning the slate will not be wiped clean. If you run a pirated version of Windows currently, you’ll essentially be upgrading to a non-authorized version of Windows 10.

A spokesperson from Microsoft later confirmed by this statement: “Anyone with a qualified device can upgrade to Windows 10, including those with pirated copies of Windows. We believe customers over time will realize the value of properly licensing Windows, and we will make it easy for them to move to legitimate copies.”
The term “qualified device” means that anyone who has a pirated or original version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1, can upgrade to Windows 10 within a year of it’s launch. It is currently technical preview phase, and global release if expected around 2015 end. Developers and tech enthusiasts can download this technical preview version here (ofcourse, for free)
In the month of January this year, Microsoft had announced the birth of Windows 10 OS. In the blog, Terry had mentioned that Windows 10 would be free for those who have an official copy of Windows 7 or 8.1. It should be upgraded in the first year of its launch. Now, with the announcement coming from China, this offer has been extended to even pirated version of Windows.
Last year, while reporting that Microsoft has killed all Android devices, we had observed that in order to fight Apple and Google, they need to focus on developing an eco-system which their biggest competitor have seamlessly done. iOS and Android both are much more than mere operating system; they are a world within themselves, generating billions of dollars of business.
