I got a copy of just about every OS going - well everything up
to the Pro versions anyways. Awesome really, I got MS 2003
and 2008 servers but I really needed them to put into VM's doing networking
(DNS, DHCP, DMZ's etc etc etc) setups for practice. Also the availabilty
of 32 and 64 bit versions - saved a lot!!
I guess MS want to give this stuff away so students can learn how to use it
and therefore recommend it for use in future projects should anyone be willing
to hire me and/or other learner drivers
iceyd - you can still get a cheap copy of Office suite ($99) as a student through
the "It's not cheating" site found here (Microsoft site): Microsoft Office Discount for Students - It's Not Cheating
Note that you can also upgrade versions of Win 7 here and other stuff- but considering
that you can get Win 7 Pro 32 or 64 bit for free through MSDNAA then there's
no need really.
