Microsoft's Windows Chief Terry Myerson, in a interview to Reuters said "We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10. Anyone with a qualified device can upgrade to Windows 10, including those with pirated copies of Windows".
Meaning every Hardware running windows Operating System either be Original or Pirated will get Free upgrade to Windows 10.
Since the ages of Windows XP it was hard was Microsoft to encourage its customers to buy legitimate Windows, especially in Brazil, Russia, India, and China. Windows XP required a activation key to verify license, which was first of its kind in verifying and activating a Operating system could'nt stop people making pirated copies and put it on internet.
Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer also agreed that actually "Only one of every 10 customers are paying for any Microsoft Software in china". This free upgrade step can be understood as Microsoft is trying hard to encourage its users to use its Legitimate Versions rather than Pirated, which are also a threat to Privacy and System Crashes.
Though it gonna cost Microsoft its profits, further Microsoft steps for Windows 10 seems to be Interesting. Stay tuned to checkthem.in we'll keep you updated.
