As I posted previously, the special offer for students to purchanse Windows 7 upgrades for just Â£30 starts today. But that’s not the only offer that Microsoft has on the table for students…
The Ultimate Steal offer is back, which lets you buy Office 2007 Ultimate for Â£39.50. You get both of those offers by visiting http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/studentoffer/
If you’re interested in software/web development or design, DreamSpark gives access to a whole range of products free of charge. You can get:
- Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2
- Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 Professional editions, and XNA Game Studio 3.1
- SQL Server 2008 Developer or SQL Server Express
- Expression Studio 3
- …and more.
Those offers are all available to all students with a .ac.uk email address, but certain students may be able to get even more software for free via MSDN Academic Alliance. If you are eligible for that, your school or academic department should be able to provide details.
Students interested in coding and other general geekiness should also check out Channel 8.
