I get it, you've heard countless people complain about not being able to upgrade, despite Microsoft actively advertising that it's "Free for Everyone". And you've probably helped them figure it out and they thank you and all that jazz. But for the past month or so since Windows 10 was released, I have still been waiting for that little icon in the bottom right to pop up so I can reserve my "free" copy of Windows 10. I have tried at least 20 different options and fixes, none of them worked. I even resorted to torrenting a copy, along with an "Activator" for it, so I could get a free product key or whatever. And to everyone's relief it did not work. I checked on the FAQ for the program and even submitted a thread to their almost barren forum, the guy was nice enough to respond but he had no idea what was causing my issues. I got my hard drive as part of a limited time offer which included a free copy of Windows 8, along with a couple games. It did not come with a product key, and honestly I did not expect that I would ever need it. And when I heard that Microsoft was essentially giving Windows 10 away I got very excited, only to come to the understanding that "Free for Everyone" really meant "Free for some people, maybe". You're probably going to read this and come up with some witty response like "You just admitted to torrenting a copy of Windows on the Windows Forum!" and yes, I did. It's not like it mattered, though. It was supposed to be free anyway, so what's the harm in getting it for free? Plus it didn't even work, so no harm no foul. I don't want anyone to try and offer me a way to fix it, because trust me, it won't work. I've tried basically everything, and nothing worked. Windows 8 sucks, and it sucks more that I am stuck with it until I cough up the $100 or so to buy Windows 10, even though it was "Free for Everyone". Pardon the swearing here, but capitalism is a bitch sometimes. Greed takes over everyone, I guess $80 billion (Give or take, I don't care enough to check) just isn't enough. He needs my money to fuel his supreme overlord plans to take over the world, one copy of Windows at a time. It's not like he hasn't already. Anyway I don't know what the point of posting this was, I just needed to vent. I've given up on trying to upgrade, there's not much point anymore. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if when I buy my free copy of Windows 10 it won't work somehow, then my receipt will magically disappear so I can't get a refund, then I'll see an ad on TV about how cool Bill Gates is, and he'll look straight into my eyes through the screen and flip me off. Wouldn't be the first time.
