Windows 10 will not affect any of pirated programs. That new EULA just says that Microsoft can stop you from using pirated "apps" from "windows store" and "Xbox store" only. Pirated .exe will work. So don't quit Windows 10 just for that.
Akinaro, 17 Aug 2015I told everyone that before win10 premier:
there is way more &quo... more[Also no one feel slowdown of internet when using windows10?
Its because now microsoft use every PC as a P2P station for sending updates and systems... I had mobile internet plugged with 30gb limit for one week... its was dead after few days because of that xD]
You can disable the p2p funktion in your windows update settings. you can even set it to only be used with PC's on your local Lan, so every PC on the lan, don't have to download every update from the internet, but can get it over your local lan. pretty smart if you ask me.
To those who haven't updated their Windows to win 10, please do not. I just updated mine, and it's an effing head ache. I'm having a compatibility issues with my softwares.
Rolled back to Windows 8.1 already.
New is not always good. Windows 10 is still unpolished even after intensive testings. I doubt Microsoft listened to the feedback of the testers. I am having a hunch that Windows Phone 10 would have same fate. Mobile being much more personal than a laptop/PC, I fear how we gonna save our privacy. And there may not be any option for rollback due to on-board storage limitations.
And im just here in the comment section waiting for someone to say that buying a Macbook air is better than a Windows PC.
"Remember Kyle, Windows 10 IS Skynet. It came online on 29 Jul 2015 and integrated with everything..." ;)

What if I was testing it or if it mistakenly think that one of my games is pirated even if it wasn't. ( on Android I had a game that sometimes think that it wasn't purchased on Google Play and later it works fine ) ( I also read about people with legit Windows 7 copies that didn't update claiming that theirs weren't legit )
Or what if I downloaded a free app from outside the Windows store, maybe even bought it from there and the developer got his money ? who they are to control others PCs

My small town's game stores particularly only have boring and outdated games of yesteryears, so my only source of video games is to get them from my friend who has a better internet than me. Also, p2w are for plebs, I agree with that.
swirly, 17 Aug 2015One more reason to stay on my Windows 7...Don't be a twit. Support real game developers, but feel free to boycott those that promote freemium games.
GSMA, check out the update on this link:
MS can do this only to Store and Xbox live content, which as far as I know can't be pirated anyway.

Now imagine paying $60 for every single game only to get bored of it 10 hours later and never finish it. I pay, however, for games I really like and know I'll play for a long time. Sometimes I even buy a game after I've finished it with a pirated version.
I've payed for about 15 games in the last 5 years and played over a hundred. I would've had to pay over $6000 on those games. Sorry, but I don't feel like spending more on games than on the food I eat, especially since most of them aren't nearly worth the price.
Android became popular because allows geeks wide access and ability to install everything they want. This is where MS fails a lot. It's not Apple to be popular on premium market and it's not enough open to be popular on geek market. While end home users usually doesn't have own preferences. They either follow creative class or geek class.
Ha, I switched to fully-legal software years ago. Sadly, most of my countrymen still think its normal to use pirated software, though, but I'm pulling them along slowly. Games come first, OS comes a little later.
Plz update this article, this blocking only works on Windows store' apps and Xbox apps Microsoft can't block our pirated .exe games and software even if they want to. They just can control pirated windows store apps. So no problem with Windows 10, it still can run pirated .exe games kudos.
I've been living without paying a canet for software for long! And its awesome! Only free games like wot and on android etc.... sadly my windows was not original :S i only use it to play games!
Anyway i bought world of warcraft today so its over :( You should try it btw :)
