I read elsewhere that they're charging for non-businesses, depending on how many devices you have.

Not familiar with that. Is that like a school grade A-B-C-D? What's wrong with the company, before I let them touch my computers?

Don't think there's anything wrong with the company or group, who ever they are, but I was suggesting that if they can't even use proper headers in their htaccess file on the website, then how would anyone trust them with Windows patches?

But again, they are using Blogspot and they may not have any control over the setting of the proper headers.

And yes, that is a school grade where A is best and F is worse.

That would make perfect sense? Dudes gotta eat and pay the rent.


Why would/should they not charge? They are providing a service. If you don't like it don't use it.

It makes perfect sense, but the blog implies that only businesses will be charged. I would want to know before I use them for my 4 computers.

This is in their FAQ-

"Yes, our post-EOS (post-End-of-Support) Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 will be available to all users with 0patch PRO or 0patch Enterprise license. So whether you're a home user with just one or a couple of computers, a small business with dozens of computers, or a large organization with a Windows fleet of tens of thousands, you'll be getting these micropatches."

So, the answer appears to be that one must purchase one of the licenses. I didn't look to see what they cost but it might be worthwhile.

On the other hand, Microsoft did provide a patch for XP and Vista for the keyblue (probably not remembering the name correctly) problem. I'm sure someone will correct me.

There was 1 patch for XP. I ran XP safely for 4 years, on the web, after patches ended, just being super-careful. And backup images are insurance.
