Black Lab Linux and Piracy

With the news that Microsoft is offering Windows 10 free for users of improperly licensed versions of Windows 7 and 8.  We agree with Microsoft that piracy is a problem and that as business leaders we have a responsibility to make sure that users of software are safe and secure whether the copy of their software is licensed properly or not.  So with that we have decided to match and extend Microsofts offer.  All copies of Black Lab Linux consumer edition with the exception of Black Lab Enterprise Desktop are free to download, install and redistribute to anybody on any PC.  We are also extending that offer to users of Microsoft Windows whose copy may or may not be properly licensed.  If you run a licensed or an unproperly licensed copy of Windows Vista/7/8 or 8.1 you are eligible to a free copy of Black Lab Linux.

We realize that all computer users want to be productive citizens.  So in joining with Microsoft in battling the issue of pirated software we are helping to contribute to a healthy ecosystem and unprecedented growth.  You do not have to wait until this summer to receive your free copy of Black Lab Linux, you can download it now:
