Terry Myerson, executive vice president of operating systems for Microsoft, wrote that the company will provide very attractive offers to those who wish to upgrade from what he called a Windows operating system in a "non-genuine state" to Windows 10. But, he said, it will not be free. Microsoft executives said that the company will not offer Windows 10 for free to those without legitimate licenses to Microsoftâ€™s software, as the company had previously seemed to say. Myerson wrote: "While our free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 will not apply to Non-Genuine Windows devices, and as weâ€™ve always done, we will continue to offer Windows 10 to customers running devices in a non-genuine state. In addition, in partnership with some of our valued OEM partners, we are planning very attractive Windows 10 upgrade offers for their customers running one of their older devices in a non-genuine state".
