Great news for people using a pirated/cracked copies of windows 8 they will receive a legit/original/authentic free windows upgrade to windows 10 ! so any user using windows 7 or 8 or 8.1 will receive the upgrade for free from Microsoft Windows !
Microsoft explained to Verge.com that :
anyone with a qualified device can upgrade to Windows 10, including those with pirated copies of Windows. 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.
Microsoft is doing it right in both ways to lower the piracy system of the Windows OS and getting more customers like this to swayed away from Operating System such as Apple OS Macintosh, but in this way Microsoft is also stating in a different way that they can’t not defeat the piracy of windows , windows has been getting pirated from the when it was first released till now but this way they wining both sides getting pirated people to use legit copies of windows + getting other users from apple to switch to windows for free, also any future upgrades will be free also to any windows 10 users.
Never saw how windows 10 looks like see the video below :
