Who gets free Windows 10 flowchart

To put it simple in word,

  1. If your computer is running a pirate copy of whatever, you will have to buy a license of Windows 10.
  2. If your computer is still riding on XP, you will have to buy a license of Windows 10.
  3. Otherwise, you are eligible for a free legitimate copy of Windows 10. And you should reserve your free copy now.

Even if you don’t have anything right now or just about to buy a new computer, you can still run a free copy of Windows 10 without paying a dime.
