@Sharpcharm
willingly installing windows 10
oh wait
having your computer automatically install windows 10 without your consent

Past July, it'll automatically remove the money from your credit cards too.

How is this news? They said that upgrades would no longer be free of cost one year from the day of release.

he thinks the notification will go away
he thinks it wont start asking him for money
he thinks Microsoft will ever let up till it gets you on windows 10 one way or another
he thinks the nightmare will ever end
he thinks they wont slip it into linux as well
he thinks he can escape the botnet

paying for windows

No regional pricing, no discounts ever, ask for 120 in raw by current rates in any country.
And they wonder why do people pirate windows.

You still can't transfer licence if you change CPU. And some people, including me, want access to dx12 and new CPUs.

@massdebater

You can't, or you "can't"?

Because I used to call Microsoft and use automated prompts to transfer my license, as long as I asserted that it was, in fact, the same computer.

I would pay more if it gave me control and privacy over my OS but instead we got a buggy pieces of shit OS that collects your information and it gives you no control over your os.

I wonder if my 'activated' install that I didn't actually activate is going to unactivate.
No way am I going to buy that shit for a virtual machine.

Every new build will be only $29 for the people who already upgraded :^)
The updates will install anyway but you will have to buy a new license and activate it after updating
But you will be able to do this automatically, just provide your credit card info :^)

You can transfer the license as long as it's not an OEM-license.

I don't know which one is worse, updating my windows 7 and get that fucking 3gb installer, or disabling update (which I did for the last 2 years) and keep my system vulnerable and I don't know if them free antivirus would be enough to keep me safe
