Dude, why are you trying to pirate a free program that you shouldn't even want to use?

Have you actually tried it at all or just making opinions from others opinions? The UI is pretty nice, very responsive (fast), and overall it seems like a pretty good system.

Oh, sorry, I have used it as my roommate is less intelligent vigilant than I am.

It's nice. It's fast. It's pretty. It would be a good OS, and that's rare for M-soft to get right this early on. All of these things would be true if they were more transparent with what their intentions were and less rapey.

There is almost no difference between Windows 7 and 10 in user experience. You are sacrificing your soul for a slight UI change and massive privacy abuse.

Yeah, but I'm not ignoring that fact that you have to sell your soul to use it Windows xp was better

I am pretty sure there is no pirated version of Win10 as they offered it to people who had pirated Win7 and Win8 versions too, no sense in pirating it. Other than maybe "fixing" the whole privacy thing

How do you think pirated Win 7/8 could get the free version? No matter if it's legitimate or pirated, it is connected to Windows' servers and they can still tinker with your stuff.

Pirated 7/8.1 versions as long as they aren't Enterprise can do the Windows 10 upgrade if they are hactivated to say Genuine. So someone can install 7/8.1 run Windows Updates and Hactivate with Microsoft Toolkit or Windows Loader using KMS keys and can upgrade to Windows 10 for a legit key.

That is why there are no pirated Windows 10 versions. Microsoft is allowing pirates to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

There is the Enterprise version. The way I understand it, the crack is a variation of the KMS hack that went around for 8.x. On its own the Enterprise version is not much better as far as locking down the built-in spying (one big difference is that you can actually stop Telemetry in local group policy), but if you put it beind an AD server you have a lot more control over everything.

While that sounds excessive, remember that 1. you're already talking about pirating the desktop OS so there's no reason not to consider pirating a server OS, and 2. You can run a home AD server for chump-change.

I ran a VM upgrading to win10 with a win7 install activated using daz loader. It worked fine I don't know if it would cause issues later but I have no intention of "upgrading" my main machine to win10 to find out.

I was running a pirated version of Windows 10 enterprise on my laptop for 2-3 weeks. I've since then moved back to Windows 7. It's the same crap though, there are no special versions of Windows 10 with user tracking disabled yet.

I am, unfortunately. - I skipped the upgrade from within Windows 7 because it failed, then I backed up, formatted, and did a clean install. I'm technically running a pirated copy of the OS despite having been eligible for an upgrade.

So Microsoft has deemed your legitimately-gained copy of Windows illegitimate through no fault of your own. Why, may i ask, would you want to continue to use their products after being mistreated as a customer like that?

I do use OpenSuse Linux as my secondary OS, but the application support isn't the same yet unfortunately. I use Windows for my gaming, modelling, and some programming, and OpenSuse for other things. I do like Windows 10 quite a bit outside of the ridiculous privacy violations, which I really hate about the OS.

Nope. Lots of torrent sites blocked win10.

it looks like Microsoft found the perfect defence against pirating: create an operating system so intrusive, that no one would like to use it.

they even block users who have installed win 10 from using the websites AT ALL. It's paranoid but it's true. I bet everything im typing now is being logged.

No. Actually I would imagine that running pirated Windows 10 would be a pain in the ass because of the automatic updates. Many of them will not even tell you what they do, (as if you were given the choice to avoid them in the first place).

I imagine MS will be constantly pushing out updates to sabotage or hobble pirated copies and people will find ways around it over and over again. Getting caught in the middle of that doesn't sound like fun to me, so I'm sticking with Linux.
