    TL; DR

    There will be no activator for W8 whatsoever. None, zip, nada. You might as well drop some cash if you really wanna upgrade.

    I think that's what the thread is trying to say.
    Than =/ Then
    There =/ Their =/ They're
    Brought = Bring; Bought = Buy

    Know the difference!

    Finally, someone who understands. If you take the time to read what Daz said (I basically interviewed him on MSN about this lol) you will understand why it's not possible. Check the first post for his MDL post regarding the situation.

    Yeah I think they took the approach of "Let's make it basically impossible for these guys to pirate it properly and just lower the price to < £30 and more people will buy it". Which, imo, is a great strategy. Makes sense! Luckily I have an MSDN Student account with lots of free software so I'll just get my copy and dual boot.

    This thread is really just warning people of the fake hacktivators out there and that regardless of what anyone says - THEY ARE NOT PERMANENT.

    Well people will still want anything free no matter how much they use it or how cheap it is but the way I see it if I like it I will buy it £24.99 is nothing really I spend more than that a week on beer lol.

    I'm not sure if you mentioned it, but what about the MC keys M$ gave out that unintentionally activated the full version of Win8? Will those also get deactivated sometime in the future? I used those on 2 of my PC.

    The key will be blocked only if you've first used KMS to activate. So if you used KMS to activate and then MCE key to make it perm there is a pretty damn good chance they will be blocked. Basically if you ever used KMS to activate then you will be screwed.

    Ahh good to know. I didn't use KMS, I simply used a Windows 8 Pro with MC iso. Plugged in the key and already activated. I guess only time will tell.

    I wouldn't mind sticking with Windows 7 for good. However, I read somewhere that the newest direct x will not work on Windows 7 or lower. That it will only support windows 8, could anyone give me info on this?
