here's a link for all college students and former college students.
all it requires is a college email address and you can buy windows 7 for $29.99
they dont check to see if the email address is still valid. hopefully all can benefit from this and boot vista out of our lives forever.
The purchase process sends a download link to your .edu address, so the address has to be valid (your student status, not necessarily).
I'm paying for this one anyway. It's a quality product.
I'm doing this using my wife's school account, but it only wants to let me have the Home version, not the professional version. Oh well.
If I remember correctly tjere is a yellow bar that says something to the effect of "need to connect to..." click that and it will take to Pro.
