However you can not use the technet serials / activations in productive environments. Its also only for testing stuff. Why not make use of the cheap preorder offers ?
Otherwise than that you would also wait some time until there are more ways to get a free technet subscriptions. Usually a few times per years its somehow possible to get one for free... had free subs for the last 3 years...
Yes it is for testing. A lot of the people here who are like me are CONSTANTLY tinkering with their computers. As far as I (we?) am concerned, this is testing.
And for $350, you can get access to (almost) EVERY M$ PRODUCT. Yeah, you heard that right. Seven, Vista, XP, Office 2000 - 2010, etc. Its all there. The only things they don't have are Windows 3.1, and NT, as well as some early things. Of course, its all for testing. But thats what we do.
Its a good deal. Again, not telling you what you should do, just what could be done.
