I would assume that those angry enough to cancel their subscriptions out of spite towards Microsoft would also be abstaining from using their software as well and are flocking to alternatives at this minute.

I'm very sorry Miss/Mrs/Ms/Mr echrada, since you cancelled your subscription, you are no longer allowed to post in this thread. FWIW, the correct answer was argyle.

It was something I knew and which was confirmed when I signed up. That's good enough.

If not, then I STILL don't "know" how many keys to expect, despite the fact that there downloads page explicitly states how many are available to me.

You sign a CONTRACT with Conditions XXXXX.
I've asked this question numerous times, but nobody has actually answered it for me. When you signed up...was there anything in print, or writing that stated that you got 10 keys? Did they actually mention the number that you were getting when you signed up....or was it just something you knew, or found out about once into the program.

Without a doubt, I'm not missing the point that you guys are making. But I don't think this type of change entitles people to money back or waiting until the contract expires because the change is insignificant and likely to not impact anybody. I mean people went from 100 possible activates to 20. However, they probably haven't used more than 5 for their own home personal testing. If they are using more than this, they are likely in violation of the terms of the software agreement anyway.

Well, MSDN is a different program. It's intended for developers and the software can actually be used in a production manner...as long as it's used by people who also have MSDN subscriptions. MSDN is also far more costly. The cheapest MSDN package is the operating system subscription which ONLY gets you access to the client workstations and the Windows server platforms and it's $700. Unlike Technet, this does NOT include Office, Exchange, SQL, ISA, SMS, Visio, etc. The next version of MSDN is Visual Studio Professional and that is $1,200.

So, I don't think there are many who purchase copies of MSDN in order to save money on their home installations.

I currently have an MSDN Visual Studio Ultimate account as part of my job...and with it, I get 20 license keys for Windows 7 (of which I have claimed 1) and with Windows Server 2008 R2, I only get 2 keys....but they are Multiple Activation Keys and I'm unsure of what the actual install and activation limit # is. I've only retrieved one key for this as well.
