[ddots-l] Re: windows 7 for 30 dollars

Students, with their student prices, make me sick. *smile*

My bank account isn't going to forget Windows 7 for a while. Even the
upgrade licenses are quite expensive. Particularly if you need to
upgrade multiple computers. The Home Premium edition isn't enough for my
needs, and that is where all of the real price breaks are. Its worth the
money, though.

Thought some would be very interested in this.


Microsoft offering Windows 7 for $30 to college students Microsoft has
started an interesting promotion this week, offering the upcoming
Windows 7 operating system to anyone with a valid .edu email for just
$30 USD, a giant discount off the OS' normally $100-plus price tag.

The official site, here:
Windows 7 offer,
http://windows7.digitalriver.com/store/mswpus/en_US/DisplayHomePage?resi
d=RiAEKQoBAkYAAB7Oh1gAAAAW&rests=1253384251100
has the following instructions:

How do I Buy?

1. Check that your PC can run Windows 7 with the Windows Upgrade
Advisor.
2. Enter your college/university email address.
3. If you're eligible, you'll receive an email with purchase details.
4. Click on the link provided in the email to proceed with your
purchase.
5. Purchase your license/product key.
6. Checkout and download!

Am I Eligible? Yes, if.

? You qualify if you have a valid .EDU e-mail OR an e-mail address
through one of the educational institutions listed here.
? You are enrolled in coursework, current proof or enrollment may be
required in the United States.
? Your PC is able to run Windows 7 - use this tool to check. THIS IS
VERY IMPORTANT!

There are a couple of catches I saw however, especially compared to the
"upgrade" promotion Microsoft has last month. You can only download the
32-bit OR 64-bit digital download for this offer, and the physical disc
costs an extra $13. For the physical one, you receive both versions and
the disc.
