[QUOTE=Heikoworld;2762872]What I never get is, people keep on saying Windows 10 is FREE “It Is NOT FREE” not to, myself included, we, over the years have paid for our Operating Sys so why should the people who have illegal copies of Windows get it for free, or at a cheaper price just so MSFT can get them as a sign up to Win 10. If the want Win 10 then buy a legal copy of Win 7 or 8.1.
these people who pirate software make me so mad, pay for it like you pay for smokes and beer.[/QUOTE]
I see the point you make, but the picture is not black and white even here.
[B]1[/B]. They have been misled (in good faith) to buy a computer with a forged installation.
[B]2[/B]. There are groups in most societies that can not afford buying. In 2015 I think I am safe in saying that you are somewhat lost without access to a PC and if your original install broke…
[B]3[/B]. Some are not old enough to buy smokes and beer and parents not knowing what they do to the computers in their boy/girl room…
[I]The people who makes you mad is actually the fourth group…[/I].
[B]4[/B]. Freeriders. They will not pay no matter, deal with it… and don’t get mad. They are not worthy of your anger.
Personally, I think it is sad that Microsoft choose to emphasize on group [B]4[/B] and not, for once say O.K. let us give them a ‘green card’ (like the U.S. do for illegal immigrants from time to time) for a limited time.
