Recently, Microsoft announced that Windows 7,8,8.1 users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free within the 1st year. However, a lot of users were questioning about “genuine” Windows 10. Now, today in a new blog post, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson shared more info about genuine and non-genuine Windows 10 installs.

Terry explains that if you’re running a non-genuine version of Windows, there’ll be a watermark on the desktop after you upgrade to Windows 10. The watermark will simply state “This is not a genuine copy of Windows” — meaning that the Windows 10 install you’re running isn’t properly licesnsed. Microsoft recommends you to return the device as there’s a risk of malware, fraud, etc. Alongside this, Terry also revealed that Microsoft will be offering “attractive” Windows 10 offers to non-genuine Windows users.
