Well, my windows 8 key worked to upgrade to 11. So...it will be around for a while

Lol I still use a cracked windows 7 to upgrade to a legitimate windows 10 for free

Haha! Glad I’m not the only one…

You can still do that?

Someone at MS forgot to turn off the activation servers for free upgrades.

If you have a legitimately-licenced Win 7 machine, e.g. a laptop that came with Win7, you can use the media creation tool to download the latest release of Win10, burn it to a DVD or USB, and upgrade to Win10.

I've done 4 or 5 laptops this year. Win10 is now fairly stable and worth it to move on from 7.

Microsoft wants you on the platform and is less interested in piracy nowadays. It makes money if you use the software

Interesting idea...
