    Works for me. Not spent a penny on an operating system in over 10yrs. Its a complete rip off to pay for a platform just to allow me to run other apps!

    Most people don't pay for Windows. They buy a new PC with the latest version pre-installed. For these people, it's effectively free (gratis).
