    Perhaps a fast and inexpensive way to get into Microsoft DreamSpark, but considering the rising costs of education, Microsoft's ongoing concern for sustaining/growing market share -- I'm surprised there's not more of an initiative on Microsoft's part to support free certification education for their products.

    :confused:

    Very nice. even tho the keys are retail, I spoke with Microsoft directly and since the key is the same for both editions, they key can be used TWICE on any edition. DC + DC, ST + ST, DC + ST etc...

    What happens after the key is used twice? Is it blacklisted?

    They key should work for the VL version, dont quote me on this :rolleyes:
    Also, you have to be in a college institution that pays for Dreamspark Premium.

    Because 100 provide us a guide to sign up for a free dreamspark account, not a free dreamspark premium account.

    You can only get windows server and a few developer programs for Dreamspark.

    If you want Windows 8 Professional, you have to get dreamspark premium (provided you are a student in a school who have dreamspark premium) or buy it when it is available on the 26th Oct. (There is also the kms or Skype methods but this is not the thread to talk about both methods)
