    Sucks to be a M$ user, maybe now is a good time to look for alternatives that offer more freedom then $. Or break the law like so many do and not pay, which is why MS do the things they do to force people to pay for using their products, which IMO is perfectly fine, if you choose to use their products they are entitled to payment, because that is their business model.

    I'm honestly surprised that Microsoft hasnt' made Windows 'free for personal use', at least the home version anyway. Most people probably just get it with their new computer anyway so I wonder how much is really to be lost in the OEM market anyway?

    I've activated lots of old machines dating back to C2D using the OEM Windows 7/8w stickers without any issues. They key on this desktop is at least 10 years old, Windows 7 Pro and still good on Windows 10 Pro.

    they are making so much subscription money they just don't care anymore.

    license is a license. the key hardly matters anymore.

    Produkey will show the bios key, if one exists.

    Yep, a volume licenced Win 7 key is not accepted for a Win10 upgrade.

    This. Or at least bump the pricing down even further so it becomes a token payment. What better way to promote your product.

    Yeh it is still very strange it costs over $100 still. Some cases much much more.

    If it was around the $50 market I'd consider not buying recycled OEM keys for $10-20. But here we are.
