Is there a free site to find window 7?

by Gwensmurf / July 26, 2014 12:08 AM PDT


I just realized that my computer needs to be window 7 or high in order for me to download my microsoft office 365 program from work?

I'm on a very tight budget and can not afford to purchase the window 7 operation system disk for my computer.

Any one have an idea where there a site that has the window 7 for free and what do I look for when I go there?

Windows 7 is not available for free. No Windows OSes are.

What you are asking is for information on pirated Windows and for that this discussion is locked.

Discussion about Piracy or unlawful activities is forbidden by Forum Policy. That is why this thread stops here.

Re: Office 365

If you need Office 365 for your work, it seems to me your work should give you Windows 7.
If it's just for your own use, why not try LibreOffice? It's free and runs on Windows XP and Linux.
