Any thing for which a lot of money is asked for should be just perfect in all respects, even if it is such complex software as the operating system. Microsoft is asking for a license for Windows 10 Pro from US residents as much as $ 200, while in Russia buying it at a company store will cost more than 13 thousand rubles. Obviously, this is just a huge amount of money for software, but it is not worth even a tenth of the amount that is being asked for.
As it was found out, many Windows 10 Pro users over the past 48 hours have fallen victim to another Microsoft flaw. Its employees with "crooked hands" somehow made it so that the users of computers that were connected to the Internet in a certain period of time, flew a license. It has evolved into Windows 10 Home, which costs more than half as much. In some cases, the license simply disappeared, causing the OS to become a “pirated” version.
When some users started to figure out what happened, then, having gone down in the history of purchases in the Microsoft Store, they were unable to find out there Windows 10 Pro. Because of this state of affairs, many began to panic, because expensive software completely disappeared, with the result that $ 200 was spent in vain. Technical support from Microsoft began to cast appeals to this effect, which were already so many hours later that one of the corporate executives intervened.
He made a public message and stated that the activation of Windows 10 had a major failure, affecting users from more than 150 countries, including Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the United States and the Netherlands. It was promised that the problem will be completely resolved within 24 hours. This period has already passed, but many people still have an unlicensed operating system, although someone was lucky a little more – the license for Pro has turned into a Home version.
According to experts, to solve this problem, Microsoft will issue a special patch in the coming days, only after installing which license for Windows 10 Pro will start working again. How was it possible to mess so hard – not reported, but all this once again proves how irresponsible the company is to control the quality of its software. Users of “Windows” are completely mad at this state of affairs, because for many a computer is not a means for entertainment, but a full-fledged tool for working and earning money.
