Msdnaa version questions

I am waiting to be approved by my school for msdnaa access but am not sure what it offers is what I need. Is what they offer equivalent to a retail version of windows 7, oem or upgrade?

Windows 7 Professional x64

Hi, bit of a late reply but the MSDNAA versions are equivalent to OEM, as far as I know. I believe they are purposed as being made available for development and testing of software, so full support like retail versions is not available.

You can also download one of each Operating System: 7, Vista or XP. So yup, you get 3 full OS's for nowt. (and Windows Server 2008 / R2, if you so desire)
