  3. MS: Upgraded Motherboard = New Windows Licence

    MS changes licence retrspectively too!

    My friend has a eMachines PC complete with OEM installed copy of XP home. The PC stopped working, I investigated and found the power supply blown - easy and cheap to fix £30 - a new power supply from PCWorld. *Smile Hello. I would like to know if i can buy a windows 10 licence  and MS 365 here in the USA... :)
    Then USB and audio on motherboard was found to have failed - easy and cheap to fix - new mother board. £30.*Smile Hello. I would like to know if i can buy a windows 10 licence  and MS 365 here in the USA... :)

    So for £60 I have a working PC BUT what is this? XP wants to be validated.
    OK I phone MS and they are very helpful. I put in my valid key and ... Oh dear it is no good. *Mad Hello. I would like to know if i can buy a windows 10 licence  and MS 365 here in the USA... :mad:

    After speaking with a number of MS staff they tell me that they cannot help me as it is an OEM copy and give me the number of the eMachines support. I phone the "tech guys" and they are very helpful, tell me how other customers have had the same problem and ask for my extended support contract details - as soon as I say I haven't one they tell me they cannot help me... *Bang Head :banghead:

    Back to MicroSoft, it seems the line is new motherboard = new pc = new XP licence
    (cost £199 from PC world). I could get a new PC for not much more than £200 complete with another OEM licence!

    I haven't upgraded the PC, I have changed nothing but the powersupply and motherboard. The PC has the same CPU, same memory, same hard disk, same case, same CD drive, same floppy. But microsoft insist it is 'new' and needs a full licence.

    Microsoft's policy may help their bank balance and manufacturers of complete pcs but it contibutes to waste, adds to global warming and increases the number of disaffected microsoft users by 2.

    So how do I get at all my photos and applications and data? MS answer is to pay for a full licence £199; my answer is to install a second hard drive £50, install linux (free) and copy over my pics, mp3s and data. I will need some new apps too as MS office wont work on linux.

    So Microsoft, you have lost me (and my friend) lost future upgrade licence fees to vista, lost MS office licence fees and driven me reluctantly to linux.

    PCWorld, I will now advise not to buy a PC with MS windows unless you are willing to pay for ongoing support that covers windows licence costs should the motherboard fail.

    Licencing Microsoft 365

    Windows 10 license and Office 365 license are independent of each other. Existence or non-existence of one product doesn't matter for the other. Hence, you can buy Office 365 license without having Windows 10 or vice versa.

    Q. If I need to buy windows 10 license first and subscribe to Microsoft 365

    A. Not required. But ideally, you would like to have an OS first and then buy applications for that OS.

    Q. If I only need to subscribe the Microsoft 365 plan to have the Windows 10 licensing

    A. Buying Office 365 doesn't entitle you to Windows 10. Similarly buying Windows 10 doesn't entitle you to Office 365.

    Q. When we stop the subscription, the W10 and Office licenses will still be valid on the computers or they are "virtual licenses", only valid for the subscription period.

    A. W10 is one time payment and is not on the basis of subscription. Hence, no concept of stopping the subscription for W10.

    Office 365 licenses are valid only during the period of the subscription. If you don't renew Office 365, the license will expire and Office 365 will go into Read only mode.

    There is another version Office 2016 which is one time payment and not on subscription model. Hence, the license is perpetual.
