We just launched this great offer for UK students… You can buy Office Ultimate 2007 for £39.50 and Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional for £30.00.
All you need is to have a valid “.ac.uk” email address (as those provided by most UK Universities and Colleges), so not just Computer Science students but pretty much everyone! I think this is quite cool and a great back-to-school surprise! :)
All you need to do is go to http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/studentoffer and answer a simple question… Are you a UK student? :)
This offer is also available in other countries, so check your local Microsoft website for more information… the US offer is available on the quite cool http://www.win741.com/ website.
And if you study or are interested in software development or websites design, I would also recommend you go to http://www.dreamspark.com where you will be able to download most of our Developer tools and platforms at NO COST!!!!!
UPDATE: As @poetofzwan made me notice on Twitter, of course if your department at Uni has a MSDN-AA subscription, you can get Windows 7 for free. To find out if that is the case, I would recommend you ask your department and especially see if they provide self-service access using ELMS!!!
