Seems to be a select list of schools. I don't see any of the colleges I was thrown out of on there.
Home Premium or Pro for $30? Not bad, but a lot of college kids get a library of software that they can get for free from there schools. Some of which already offer RTM Windows 7.
So many restrictions...also, I don't want an upgrade. I want the actual full windows 7 professional disc.
My University should be getting Windows 7 for all students for free, but I'm unsure in what capacity (upgrade only, or full professional, etc). If something falls through though I will check this out.
What about Teachers? And what about High Schools? They didn't allow for the vast majority of the educational system I think,.....
>> What about Teachers?
Microsoft sells discounted versions to teachers too. God forbid that educators teach general computing concepts and not just how to use the menus in the current version of Microsoft Office.
In order to purchase the Professional upgrade, do the following.
1) Enter you edu email address and then open the email they send you
2) click where it says "need to join a network domain. Click here!"
a small window will pop up with the Professional upgrade, for the same price too, just $29.99.
Is the School of Hard Knocks an acceptable educational institution? I've been enrolled my whole life.
That is all well and good, But what about us people north of the border? We arn't eligible for that promotion. At least we could get in on the discount upgrade promo.
