About this website...

The windowsbase.pl website is a website created with passion, the main goal of which is to collect all kinds of installation images related to Microsoft Windows, Linux, as well as programs and all additions intended for these systems. The website was created on September 20, 2019. Since then, it has undergone many cosmetic and functional changes, thus gaining over 20,000 views. It may not be a record, but certainly a satisfactory result for the beginning of website development.

QUICK STATS:
(updated every month)

 

Base contains: 3,16 TB of data + data located on external servers

 

Files in the base: 2427 images

 

Page views : 25,500 times (since December 2019)- 3360 times (from September of 2020.)

 

 

 

The site has a large image library, and itself boasts the results of over 1900 files, worth around 3TB of data. The new ones themselves supported the development of the website by adding over 100 images to the database. There is a base, which means that anyone can have an impact on its entirety. If you would like to ask if it is safe to download images from this site, I can assure you it is. Each file is verified and scanned for viruses and other hidden threats, so you can be sure of security in advance. Images come from legal distribution (MSDN- Microsoft Developer Network), and from FTP directories, distributions of images submitted by multiple users. These images are copies of CDs, usually packed in an archive (zip or rar).

 

The site is still developing, new images are added, links are repaired or social assistance articles are added in my spare time. It all takes precious time, but passion must be shared.

 

I would also like to summarize here as an administrator to all entities, and that added something for the development of this website. Any help is appreciated here. I also want to subscribe to and entities that have agreed to help in the development of this site:

Legality and copyright:

 

According to most interpretations of international copyright law, distribution of copies of installation images of programs and operating systems is in the grey area of legality. Copyright is retained by the original publisher or licensed distributor unless explicitly stated. THIS WEBSITE-WINDOWSBASE.PL DOES NOT PROVIDE OR PUBLISH ANY IMAGES, BUT ONLY LINKS TO DOWNLOAD FILES THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND ON THE INTERNET IN ALL SOURCES. The images come from legal distribution (MSDN - Microsoft Developer Network), as well as from FTP directories, pages and any archives that distribute images sent by multiple users. The site also does not publish any license keys that may violate copyright laws, but only copies of the original images. The user can download the image, install it or test it for educational or testing purposes for 30 days, after that time he must purchase the original license key (which confirms the legality of the installed product). In connection with this thesis, the site does not give any guarantees regarding the software obtained from the library of this site, as it is not itself bound to the distribution of these images, it is only a site built for educational, archival, hobby and informational purposes. It does not violate any rights and has no grounds to suspect it of copyright.

 

For those interested in the rights that are applicable in Poland (due to the fact that the website is governed by Polish law, I encourage you to read the legal act from this link) I recall the most important legal articles that determine the legal operation of this website:

It would be nice if you could make a donation =)



As you probably know, website maintenance costs money. Payments for the use of the domain, hosting for data and website files, and a network transfer by which I share images in the library for you, costs real money. The costs are out of pocket, but you can help. By supporting the website with any amount, part of the fees is covered from the donations received. By paying any amount you help in the development and maintenance of the website on the web. The payment is voluntary and not for the personal purposes of the author. I do not earn money from the website, but I develop hobbies and passion in my spare time from work. If you want to support the website development, please click the button below *. You can also support me for free. Just share this page with your friends on the internet or put a link on your website. Thanks to this, we will build a larger community on this website.
