    Yeah, it won't. It'll be an uncomfortable time until they relinquish, though. I use all kinds of unauthorized hardware!

    As far as I know it will apply to hardware that is being used in a country where it's not available for purchase in said country.

    In my case, things I've built/am building myself. Nothing fancy, but MS are well aware of the fact that things other than keyboards and mice gets plugged in.. The US Navy is paying them a bunch to not forget it.

    This will never last, people will just go back to win 7 and not bother with 10 then, Microsoft won't make any money, and quickly remove that feature.

    Also if you pirate win 10 will it detect itself?
    Almighty legit one.
