Microsoft has moved a step ahead and announced that, he will provide Windows 10 update for free, even for those users who are using pirated version of Windows OS 7 to 8.1. This free update will be available for first year and is mainly targeted to China, where 75% of Windows PCs are running pirated software.
Terry Myerson, who runs Microsoft’s operating systems unit, announced the plan at the WinHEC technology conference in Shenzhen, China.
“We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10,” he said in a telephone interview with Reuters. The plan is to “re-engage” with the hundreds of millions of users of Windows in China, he said, without elaboration.
Myerson said Windows 10 would be released globally sometime “this summer”.
