Microsoft Windows 10 will be a Free Upgrade for Windows7/8/8.1 Users [Even for Pirated Users]

It's Official! Microsoft Windows 10 will be a free update for present windows users-as long as u Grab it Quickly!!

We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10.” Terry Myerson, the head of Microsoft's operating systems unit, said on Tuesday ,21st January 2015.

Terry Myerson also said that current users of Win 7, Win 8/8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 will be able to upgrade to the new operating system for free as long as they do so within one year of Windows 10's launch—even if  you are using Pirated Edition. Once you’ve claimed the upgrade, it remains permanent, and Microsoft will keep you updated for the supported lifetime of the device.

Here's the Print from the Windows 10 page on Microsoft's site: 
“It is our intent that most of these devices will qualify, but some hardware/software requirements apply and feature availability may vary by device. Devices must be connected to the internet and have Windows Update enabled. ISP fees may apply. Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Update required. Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise outside of this offer. We will be sharing more information and additional offer terms in coming months.”

By giving away Windows 10 for free, at least for the first year, Microsoft is deviating from its regular sales model for the first time. Announced earlier that Windows 10 will be launching this summer in 190 countries, with the vendor focusing its attention on China.
Lenovo is committed rolling out the Windows 10 upgrade to its customers soon it becomes available, as well as stating that it would launch its first Windows Phone this summer. 

Behind Story: Microsoft's plan to forgive piracy in China urgent than in other regions, as companies like Apple and Xiaomi are successfully establishing their own software and services in the country. If Microsoft doesn't want to be left out of grab, it needs legitimate users, even if they come at the expense of licensing revenue. Still, Microsoft's goals of establishing its own services are the same everywhere, so it makes sense for the company to make a push toward legit licenses worldwide.

Now crate some Application Packages with Dockers

Ever seen those huge and conspicuous containers at shipyard which are capable of storing lots of materials and junk ready to be exported,imported and transferred. As the world is racing towards the digitalization, even the concept of Dockers have been digitalized. Learning about contemporary  Docker is, it allows to us to combine an application with all of its necessary dependent data into a standardized unit for development of software code. Simply speaking, Dockers work just like containers wrapping up a piece of application code in complete file system that contains everything which are required to support at execution level: code, system tools, system libraries , runtime utilities, GUI files – however, accessibility is a remote-level picture. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in. As we talk about Docker, we are looking at bigger picture. With remote level availability, these units are definitely everyone’s choice.

IBM LinuxONE : Execute everything with Linux Mainframe!

IBM on 17th August 2015 announced the launch of IBM LinuxONE Enterprise level which runs on Linux.  As we all know, Linux is known for its security and high-end flexibility, the latest one’s will definitely be cynosure.  The server variants includes LinuxONE Emperor for large enterprises and Rock hopper for mid-size businesses. LinuxONE Rockhopper can efficiently support small scale infrastructure at lower costs. IBM Mainframe is designed in a subtle way, with a capability of handling 8,000 virtual machines, and millions of active users it would be simply Uber. To be more specific, LinuxONE is capable enough to handle 30 Billions RESTful Web transactions per day.       Now, what is a RESTful transaction??! . While REST means Representational State Transfer, this is an architectural style for hypermedia networked application design; it mainly is used to build modern day web services which make things easy, with their lightweight, maintainable and compatible dimensio
