KMS Pico Activator for Windows 8
Windows 8 have similar things to Windows 10.
There’s no Windows grace period.
It’s either Activated or not activated. You get a few penalties as well if it’s not activated.
Those are more annoying than Windows 10.
Again you’re going to see those notifications on the bottom right of the desktop screen, telling you that Windows is not activated.
You’ll also be getting some other notifications in the actions panel.
Again in the PC settings menu, it’ll tell you the same thing to activate it.
Just like with Windows 10 it will restrict personalization.
You cannot modify app colors, desktop backgrounds, and the lock screen image.
You can’t even change account icons.
So no customization is allowed.
The only difference which is the most annoying one is that every 6 hours you will be getting an activation prompt.
It will pop up and remind you that you haven’t activated your Windows.
That annoying notification can overlay over anything or any other app you’re using.
It could be very annoying depending on what task you’re doing.
If you’re like on a conference call or you’re doing any screen share then that activation prompt that pops up might be a lot embarrassing to you.
If you’re playing a video game or so and you’re about to win the round and it pops up and you die.
That could also be a lot annoying for gamers.
So that is something that you will be reminded of every 6 hours.
This activation reminder pop-up tends to happen in the worst possible situations.
Other than this, there is nothing.
They’ll not prevent you from using Windows 8 OS.

KMS Pico Activator for Windows 7
Windows 7 was the last edition of MS Windows OS that had a trial period.
It had several different parts of its 30-day grace period.
At the end of the trial period, it stops you from the usage of Windows.
If you don’t activate Windows for the first 3 days, nothing happens.
There’s a little icon on the system tray that prompts you to activate Windows.
Other than that you really wouldn’t even notice anything.
For the next 27 days, you’re going to get a daily popup reminder at the taskbar to activate Windows.
It is once a day, so you can easily close it, and you won’t be noticing anything.
After the 27th day and for the coming 3 days, the final part of the grace period starts.
It’ll pop up every 4 hours at the taskbar.
It’s trying to remind you but again nothing will stop you from using Windows.
After 30 days, you’re going to get a pop-up after every hour.
That could get annoying.
Any time you open up the control panel, there will also be a reminder message that you have not activated Windows.
First of all, you cannot change your desktop background, it will revert to a black background after every hour.
So you are not able to change the background and that is extremely annoying.
The other biggest penalty is that you will not be able to install system updates.
It can only update the security updates and the critical ones.
New feature updates definitely would not be installed.
And this would probably be worth it to upgrade if you want the latest security patches of Windows.
Besides this, there isn’t anything that can stop you from using Windows 7 after that grace period ends.

KMS Pico Activator For Windows Vista
Windows Vista is an ancient history of MS Windows.
It’s still interesting to talk about this. Because Windows Vista was a bit more hardcore.
The penalties for vista changed with different Windows Vista versions.
There was one set of penalties for the first version of Windows Vista the RTM released.
After Service Pack 1, it changed.
The penalties we’ll cover here, apply to both versions.
So with the original release of Windows Vista, there was a 30-day grace period.
Where pretty much nothing annoying happened.
After that, there was a reduced functionality mode in Vista.
That reduced functionality has many hardcore penalties.
It would not let you play the system’s built-in games.
There were no premium features in Vista.
The Aero glass theme was not allowed.
That theme was introduced in Vista and then came up with the later Windows versions as well.
You could not get any access to ReadyBoost or BitLocker tools.
If you didn’t use those features, you probably won’t even notice it.
The most annoying thing was that the user would not be allowed to stay logged into Windows Vista for more than one hour.
It would log you out automatically after one hour.
I think it would shut down Windows OS completely.
So it would either force you to log in again or possibly shut down your machine completely.
So if you did not activate Windows, you couldn’t use your PC in a meaningful way.
After Vista Service Pack 1, Microsoft did chill out a little bit.
There’s still the 30-day grace period but you still could keep using Windows.
It did not force you to log out after every single hour.
But it seized the ability to personalize your PC.
It would also pop up a notification periodically, telling you to activate Windows as soon as possible.
However, the most extreme penalty here was that it did not allow you to install any Windows updates except critical ones only.
If there were any bug fixes or feature updates, then you could not get them, if you did not have activated your version of Windows.
KMS Pico Activator For Windows XP
Unactivated Windows XP had the most extreme penalty ever.
After the 30-day grace period is over, you could not use your MS Windows OS at all.
It wouldn’t even let you boot into Windows.
You had to activate it or it would not work on your PC.
It was either you activate or do not use it.
Now you might be wondering why Microsoft stopped annoying its users.
Get to Windows 10, you can use it as much as you want to.
You just can’t customize it anyway.
So why did Microsoft do this nowadays?
I’ll give you my opinion this is not going to be 100% correct.
Why has Microsoft offered free upgrades to Windows 10 OS in the past few years?
I think it’s the same reason why they just let you use it without even activating it.
I expect that Microsoft makes most of its money from bulk Windows OS activations.
Big companies and manufacturers build lots of computers and they buy Windows licenses in bulk quantities to use them on all their machines.
A very small number of Windows Product Keys are being sold out directly to consumers.
So a small percentage of people want to buy a product key to upgrade their version of Windows.
If you’re building computers, the buyers for those computers pay for the Windows Product key as well.
Most of these users are not pirating Windows as well.
It’s not even worth it for Microsoft to spend the money trying to catch them when they’re making so much money from their legitimate users.
People who pirate Windows, go through all this trouble just to customize it.
They don’t want to pay that much money for just the personalization of their OS.
So Microsoft is probably not going to recover much money by forcing these people to activate Windows.
That’s why they released a free upgrade to Windows 10 for all.
They just want as many people as possible, to use Windows 10.
They can monetize their Windows installations in many ways.
Such as charging users for installing Microsoft Office or using OneDrive storage, or just buying some products from the Windows Store.
Microsoft knows well that these people will pirate Windows and they’re not going to buy our 100-dollar product key.
We’re probably not going to make any money from them, anyway.
So we just let them use Windows free but we will restrict the customization.
Give them some incentives but hopefully, we’ll get some money out of them in other passive ways.
That’s why I think they’re moving towards a free Windows 10 for all.
So everyone will be using Windows and then they could start implementing their extreme penalties, forcing people to activate it.
They let people get addicted to Windows and then force them to activate it later on.
Windows 2.1 Activation
Microsoft released Windows 2.1 versions of Windows/286 and Windows/386.
Windows/386 runs on the virtual 8086 modes of the Intel 80386.
It is good for multitasking several DOS programs.
The paged memory model was used to emulate the expanded memory using the physical memory.
Windows/286 uses Intel 8086 and Intel 80286 processors in real mode.
It uses the high memory area as well.
Version 2.03, and Windows 3.0 were challenged by Apple because of overlapping their features with Windows OS.
It mimicked Apple’s copyrighted “look and feel” of iOS and the Macintosh.
Judge William Schwarzer declined all 189 copyright claims except the 10.
It was ruled that the remaining 10 Windows features were based on uncopyrightable design ideas.
KMSPico can be used to activate the old Windows 2.1 as well.
