my Pro direct expires in a few days. It says I can renew for $149 instead of the $199, but when I click it. It says $199. since I'm not renewing the new standard.. but thats cuz it's the first year.

I guess I could call instead.

Anyone have a promo code for Standard?

So with Standard you cannot download the OS (Windows 7, Windows Server, etc) nor the application software such as Office 2010. Makes zero sense to pay for that.

The technet product list doesn't have Office 2010 but does have most flavors of Windows 7, Server 2008 and office 2007.

ok, let me start by saying that i don't know anything about technet. i've read the faq, but am still unsure about a few things.

am i right in thinking that if i pay 134, i can download copies of all the software in the list and legally use it for as long as i like? i'll also have access to e-learning?

this doesn't sound right (although i'm hoping it is!) - there's got to be a catch??

can anyone join up - or do i need to be some sort of qualified professional?

or have i misunderstood completely ?

Well, its a very grey area that could probably be debated for hours.

The software is supposed to be used for "testing". Will Microsoft ever know what you are using the OS for? Probably not.

You are supposed to be certified IT, again... Microsoft will never really know what you are.

I do have a feeling Microsoft will regulate this in the future.
