"In the US, students can pre-order their copy of Windows 7 beginning September 17th and can download the OS beginning on October 22nd (general availability)," a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed with Ars. For US students, we checked and saw that they need to have a .edu e-mail address or be attending one of the 158 schools Microsoft lists. "Students in the UK can pre-order their copy beginning on September 30th for download on October 22nd. Students in all other participating markets can take advantage of the offer beginning on October 22nd. In most markets, the offer ends on January 3rd (in Australia the offer is available until March 31st)."

Windows 7 Ulti. x64
 
 

Yes the site is up and looks like MS has decided to cash in on this. After reading this apparently anyone with a college Id that has paid their tuition can get in on an $30 upgrade. What is a million times $30 anyway? Got to hand it to them they saw what was going on with the student thing and responded with their own deal.

The process is a little funny...You verify your email and then they send you a link to the store where you can buy the cheap 7

I imagine that someone could have an EDU account that could be giving out the link for people to go in and buy it..seems insecure to me

Actually it says that the Product Key is emailed to yourself at checkout along with a link to download 7
