    Lot of users did get their Dreamspark keys here, but keys are limited, compared to Retail or MAK ones. That´s why a lot of them using KMS, to not use up activations, due to it´s not needed by now :D.

    Most people with any school email address can get Server 2012 datacenter ( one key can be used for two activations standard + datacenter I believe). Access to get Windows 8 is only available if you still have an active registration with your school's respective department ( usually CS ) to log into the webstore.

    BC they know we're already broke, so they'd have to wait until the economy recovers for us to make enough money to consider buying it, by which time they would have a newer version out.

    I registered my dreamspark but I don't see windows 8 in my school catalogue. Does this mean I can't get windows 8 pro?

    edit: nvm.. I see now! With this key, how many licenses I can install? Ie.. can I install this on my laptop and desktop, and if I need to reinstall windows, how many times can I do it?

    Kewl! IMHO they weren't even clever enough to check SMBIOS for dates on SLIC 2.1 bios mods - there is no way they gonna do a binary check for KMS extended PID's..:)

    Yes...but for Activating Microsoft Windows 8 Pro with media center for free with legitimate key....

    Microsoft spent a lot of time and effort to protect their investment.
