Microsoft officially ended free upgrades to Windows 10 for Windows 7 and Windows 8.x users on July 29th, 2016, but it still allowed customers that rely on assistive technologies to continue making the leap for free.

The kicker here, however, is that even if you don't use assistive technologies in Windows, you can still take advantage of the free upgrade. So, for anyone that wants a legitimate Windows 10 license without having to fork over any money, this is about as good as it gets.

Microsoft originally said that its free upgrade for assistive technologies users would end on December 31st, 2017. However, that date passed and customers were still able to download a free copy of Windows 10. Microsoft then updated the language on its site to state:

If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies. Please take advantage of this offer before it expires on January 16th, 2018.

Well, today is the day, which means that if Microsoft is true to its word, you will no longer be able to download the Windows 10 installer tomorrow. Freeloaders will have to either upgrade all of their machines by this evening or prepare to fork over $100+ for a license for each computer. In other words, the party's over pal... or is it?

It's likely that only techies and people who genuinely need assistive technologies even know that the free upgrade "loophole" still exists anyway, and most enthusiasts have probably already upgraded to Windows 10 (or at least have obtained their free license key by now). The majority of legacy Windows users who still need to upgrade will likely go through the normal channels to do so, forking over money for a digital download.

most people building PCs are also too ignorant to switch their BIOS from the default settings to UEFI only boot or UEFI preferred, or use UEFI install media, or change the settings in their BIOS so the RAM they bought actually runs at the listed clock speed via the XMP profile, etc...

there are people who pirate windows who know what they are doing.

windows XP was dead easy because of VLKs, so long as you weren't on a huge volume license then you escaped detection

vista came out with KMS activation. for vista (OEM activation 2.0) and 7 (OEM activation 2.1) it was super easy to emulate OEM activation because every key was the same for a given edition of windows from a manufacturer. one command to load a digital certificate and emulating the SLIC table for the license in the BIOS and you were golden.

as microsoft tried to pick the BIOS loaders off in support packs and updates, some people instead modded the actual bios' they installed to contain the SLIC table instead. (SLIC is inert code, easy enough to edit the BIN and flash it with that table in). this survived updates like KB971033 fine.

windows 8 changed the game with OEM keys being issued tied to mobo serials, this killed OEM activation. KMS activation wasn't permanent but the grace period required for enterprise applications and to not bug the shit out of users (180 days) meant it was practical. also there are tons of valid KMS keys.

now on win10 with defender built into windows (as it was on 8) they try to remove some of the most popular KMS activators, but you can deactivate defender and user a 3rd party AV, or just whitelist the folder the KMS activator is in. from a detection perspective, the activator is easy to detect, reconciling a legitimate KMS server against a fake one is far harder (and not worth the effort).

tl;dr you can pirate and know the best way to do it + technology advantages under the hood.

>> No.64370531

technet, MSDN, dreamspark keys are subject to activation limits that normal retail keys are not. paying for a key acquired out of channel is pretty fucking dumb. in a business software audit you'll still get fucked because you violated the license agreement, in personal terms no one gives a shit.

there are utilities for KMS activation that are open source and Microsoft posts the hashes of the ISOs for windows media. hell, you can use microsoft tools to download the ISO/prepare a USB, and then modify a single file to change the channel (volume/retail/oem) and the edition (if required from home to pro to enterprise).

if you download install media from a non-microsoft source without verifying the hash against one published by MS, you're asking for botnet, but it is very easy to pirate windows with a KMS activator while having a legitimate uninfected copy.

> ever since Win98SE actually
> WinXP introduced Cleartype which made the tiny fonts look easier to see

I heard Aero has a processing footprint, so I turned it off. It wasnt allowing me to change the colors on its glassy interface the way I wanted to anyways so I didnt care to keep it. Ive noticed the difference slightly in the performance footprint so this had a worthwhile benefit.

I have a low resolution (1024x600) which means screen space is at a premium. My Eyes dont have a problem making out the fonts that ive picked at 6-7 point size. It comes out to about the same size on the screen probably as it does for other people running 1080p with default 9-12 point font sizes.

I would've loved having a 10 inch screen at 1920x1080, but no the pixels arent that small.

The problem is it has alot more bloat going on in the background in the form of various services, plus the interface. While it may be better at ram management (and I dont know if that statement is true) its going to be harder on the CPU. Windows 8 certainly is from what ive heard, and if that's any track record for microsoft Windows 10 will suck up even more processing than 8.

And I dont Have to upgrade, so I wont.
The next computer I get, even if its a pawn shop special, is probably going to have better specs and come with windows 10 on it. At least it'll be able to handle 10 like this one handles 7.

its never upgraded on me before without me knowing about it

Well see here you're speaking of Ram but I wasnt speaking about Ram at all. I was speaking of processing speed. That is, the megahurts that the CPU can churn out.

My computer has 1670 Mhz, it does not have any "cores", its just a single CPU that does its job alone.

Now, while 1,670,000 cycles per second sounds like a heck of alot, when im running alot of things that eat up alot of that - programs I dont care about such as a greedy operating system can seriously bite into that and take more than its fair share. Which may leave the games, browser, mp3 player, and photoshop really struggling to even remember what they were doing.

It does not have any cores, so that 1,670,000 cycles per second is not being multiplied by any amount, it isnt multiplied by 2, or 4, or 8.

TLDR - If windows 10 eats more Processing than windows 7 then I cant use it, because my computer is already sorta against the ropes and only functions at a medium efficiency under win7.

Win10 is leagues above Win7 as a developer platform. It has much better out-of-the-box device support. Better security (because tinfoil-hat autism isn't an argument here). GUI performance and boot are faster. It's far more stable and "no, it isn't" is not an argument here - manually fucking up your OS due to not knowing what the fuck are you doing isn't a sign of OS instability as when the user has at least half a brain OS is very stable. It also has access to a wider variety of tools and applications.

>> Had to pay M$oft indirectly by buying a $18 Enterprise key off ebay to use with LTSB. :/ Didn't want Chinese rootkit, though.

LTSB is OK. It's like 7 but with a worse start menu. Actually runs a lot cooler on my laptop compared to 10 Home, and I believe even compared to 7 that I had to boot in Legacy BIOS before. 10 Home ran wicked hot, both in CPU temps displayed and general heat of the laptop. LTSB runs really cool in both.

Was thinking I'll eventually upgrade my desktop to 10 LTSB, too, but since GPU prices will soon be $1000 for a GTX 1060 I'll have to run my oldass HD6__ and HD7__ cards until they explode, and they don't support DX12 so there's literally no reason to go to 10.

My experience is that a light Linux distro on shitbox hardware feels like modern Windows on latest stuff, at least as far as web browsing/etc goes. Really frees things up if your whole OS only uses 100mb RAM at idle instead of 2gb like Wangblows.

>> No.64377131

Why can't I just download updates when I choose and then have them installed the next time I reboot? Why do I no longer have the full choice of when these things occur? Yeah, 7 isn't much better in this regard, but at least I can download updates and then tell Windows to fuck off for hours rather than have 10 shit on my face if I happen to fall outside of the dumbass active hours.
Windows Update fucking blows regardless of the update/download timing, but god damn. It's almost like they designed the system to piss off anyone who uses a computer for more than just checking email.

It's not that I'm using it for 18 hours straight, it's that I might want or need to use it during some time not designated as "active."
And this really begs the question of why I have to dick around with this shit at all. I'd install updates all fucking day if they didn't force me to restart whenever they were done.
Here's what I want:
I hit "update system"
Windows downloads updates
Windows installs updates the next time I reboot (if a reboot is necessary)
