Direct Link To This Post Topic: Free Microsoft software
    Posted: Apr/26/2010 at 4:48am
Searched and didn't find the url anywhere.

This site called https://www.dreamspark.com offers free M$ software for "students."  To get verified I figured I'd need to enter my school email address so they can verify me, but all I really had to do was select the school. LOL

Unfortunately there's not all of M$'s software, it's just programs for the more tech related individuals.  No MS Office or anything, but there is Visual Studio 2010 Pro, Windows Server, etc.

Just call me Dan

Nice, there is a lot of useful software on that site. I haven't gotten a chance to try out VS 2010 yet, but I will now. Of course, this site is only useful if you are a computer nerd.

a lot of schools have agreements with microsoft and have a special msdn academic alliance that allows cheap or free software.  the bigger the school you go to, the more likely you'll get it for a really good price if not free.

I can vouch for the website.  It's legit.

If you are a college student that is currently taking any kind of computer class you are eligible for free software galore.   Go ask your head IT guy at the college or one of the tech friendly teachers about it.

here's a fixed link to Microsoft's Dream Spark

Check it, Daily-Pages

also depends on what college you're in at your university, most come discounted, and some are actually free Wink

anyone know where you can download a trial of M$ Office home and student version? I bought it yesterday (disk version), but the netbook has no disk drive, so I am trying to figure out another way to install it besides using a usb disk drive... And I would have to have the home and students trial version for the product key to work for it (so the office professional trial wont work)

Good link, that should definately help out the more tech oriented college students we have on here. I could have used this back in the day.
