    Hi there !

    That's my question, i've read it's not neccesary, you can do whatever you want apart from watermark and personalization

    Am i right?

    Can you get all the microsoft updates like everyone else?
    Can you upgrade to a new build?
    Is there any trouble with bitlocker?

    And the most important, do you think MS is going to change its policies?

    I've read about KMS, however i'm really ignorant and a bit paranoid

    No automatic updates either? I was never able to download any until I have activated it. Though, some might actually consider it as a bonus. :cool:

    And why would you prefer not to activate windows 10, finally there is a real "free" windows (no piracy or key needed) and now you don't want to activate it??

    I've read we do have automatic updates, if not... not worth it

    Still needs a 'pirated' predecessor :D. Itr should be mentioned there's no need for paranoia, the tools offered here are used by thousands of people.

    Their new "flagship" Pro-WS doesn't need any piracy to get it for free, msft screwed up that one by handing out a working key :D
