Microsoft Will Be Offering Free Upgrades To Windows 10 Even For Users With Pirated Copies of Windows 7 and 8

Microsoft is offering free upgrades to Windows 10 even for users with pirated copies of Windows 7 and 8

According to a report, Microsoft is going to upgrade not only genuine copies of Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10 for free, but also pirated ones.

The head of Microsoft's operating systems unit, Terry Myerson, has stated while in China this week that:
We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10.

Since it was said in China, it caused confusion which made people think that the free Windows 10 upgrade could be limited to China, however, Microsoft has since confirmed that it is not limited to China and anyone around the world with a device that can handle Windows 10, will receive the free upgrade.

The reason for this decision is to fight rampant piracy of the Windows operating system, stating:
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.

Windows 10 is expected to be released this Summer, and is said to have more features being added after release. Those using Windows 7 and 8 will be offered a free upgrade to Windows 10 in the first year of it's release.
