    Our department at school finally renewed their MSDNAA license with Microsoft. That allows the school to give certain pieces of software to its students. I got my login yesterday but waited until I got to work so I could use the OC12. After everything was said and done, I got about 5GB worth of software, for free. :big grin:

    XP Pro, VS.NET, SQL Server, MSDN Lib, and 2000 AS I can actually use now. :big grin: Currently, I don't have a use for 2000 Server, Project, 2000 Pro, or 98 SE. I figured I should get them while I could though. I do need Visio for an upcoming class though. :bigthumb:

    Oh yeah, ME was up there too, but I didn't think it was worth the download. :p

    Yes, I believe I could use every single piece of software listed there. ;)

    VS.NET, MSDN, Visio, and SQL mostly. *hint*

    If you consider the cost of your college education 'free'.
