Also far more legal than pretending you're a student...


AFAIAA the OEM version here has no requirement to be a student nor in case you are wondering does the one sold by software to students, "Quote" All School, College, University students and their family members are eligible! (including Guardians)

I doubt many people who have bought a copy of W7 from S4S lie awake all night worrying whether they are 100% eligible to use it. Nor do I suspect do MS, I am sure they would rather have people buy a version from S4S and make some cash rather than folks downloading a pirate copy possibly spreading viruses and Trojans to infect other genuine copies. :)

I'm well aware of the licensing requirements for education thanks. Was more a crack at the comments about educational software above. Chill winston.

Although the point still stands about pretending to be a student; ie fine if you're eligible, lucky you, but if you are not (like me), then technet is the way to go for a legit copy, not faking an education account.

If that's a direct quote from MS I'll eat my tri-cornered hat Sir.

Of course it's not an MS quote and you did not quote me fully, what I actually said was

meaning it was my comment not theirs. :)

TBH I've ran pirated OS for years and never had any problems even though I regularly used it for financial transactions too.

And I'm sure off the record MSFT are pretty pleased if pirated copies do have infections/malware. Why? Because I think having a clean OS is one of the main reasons people do pay for the Genuine article. That, or like me, they just can't be assed anymore with dodging the MSFT Genuine checks.

I would have thought, if you are going down the pirate route, you would download a clean version, or use a genuine version you own, and use a win 7 loader to install on your other machines, never had a issue.

Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium are not future proof and probably waste of money. Thats because they have a physical memory limit and for home premium its only 16gb.

You'll only ever need over 16gb if you're a serious video maker/editor, 3D model rendering or using your computer to run scientific 1-day calulations. Stop trying to be that guy.
