    Question Todays puzzle - Can you really get Windows 10 Pro for 20?

    An intriguing offer from Groupon UK has just popped into my mailbox - Windows 10 Pro for 19.99! ($26.13)

    Quite an amazing offer, seeing that the genuine Microsoft UK site shows the download cost as 219.99! ($287.52)

    So, can you really get a genuine, legal copy of Windows 10 Pro OEM (that will activate) for less than 20?

    (I've emailed Groupon UK asking for confirmation that the offer is legal.)

    Actually, earlier this week I successfully upgraded a customer's Win7 Home Premium SP1 x64 desktop PC to Win10 Home x64. After the upgrade Win10 activated automatically w/o any problems. That was just the latest of many such cases since July 2016.

    I tried to look here in Brazil for this offer but I couldn't find it too! The price here is starting from R$380 and going higher....
