Microsoft will change activation for Windows 9

Microsoft will change activation for Windows 9

Microsoft has always had one major problem and this is software piracy and piracy of Microsoft Windows in particular. The corporation has spent years perfecting systems that protect its Windows OS from being pirated but in most cases the measures taken have not been that effective. Now the US corporation plans something entirely new for its upcoming Windows 9 OS and that is an activation system that may put an end to Windows piracy.

In a few words the Redmond company will do away with software keys. Starting with Windows 9 users will have to use a Microsoft Store account in order to activate Windows 9 and keep it valid. The entire procedure works like this – after you log into Microsoft Store and pay for Windows you will get to download a generic install disc image. After you install Windows, your computer hardware specs are logged with Microsoft and then Windows stays activated. When you change your hardware or you want to install Windows on another computer you have to untie your current computer from your online license, install the operating system on a new computer and then Windows will stop working on your old computer ensuring that the copy you have runs on one machine only.

Windows 9 is expected in H1 2015 and this time the new Windows release will bring the Start menu back to the delight of millions of people around the globe.
