Microsoft Corporation, probably, came up with a way to return money for pirated versions of Windows, which became “licensed” after the update. It’s about the release of the official DVD player for Windows 10, for which they are asking for $ 15.
The same amount will have to be paid out to users who have updated the operating system honestly: “Clients who upgrade to Windows 10 from versions of Windows 7“ Maximum ”,“ Professional ”,“ Home Advanced ”or Windows 8.1 with Media Center will receive this application for free for a limited period of time as part of the next automatic update of Windows, ”the specification for the program clarifies. However, the solution begs the obvious: you can download any free media player that plays not only DVDs but also many other video file formats not supported by the new OS.
It is suggested that Microsoft’s decision is due to the need to pay royalties and other royalties to content and technology rights holders. By the way, Solitaire Solitaire now costs $ 10 a year. Otherwise, the user will have to put up with annoying advertising.
