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.

Bought the $30 one and I get Enterprise free through LSU. Hoping they give us a license for Ultimate as well.

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.

oh well. In all actuality, Home is really all I need for my home PC.

EDIT: I'm going to get another copy using my brother's edu address. All is well in the world.

Do you have to prove that your a student or do you just need a valid .edu email address? (I work at a university so I have the .edu email address, but I am not a student) Do they mail you the install disc or just a link to download the operating system?

Anybody have any success with this?
