    TechNet was a subscription to try out all sorts of Microsoft software,not only Windows 8 or Windows Server and Office so why would anyone post this information any place other than in this forum?

    When I didn't see it here,I posted it here.

    Many threads and posts on these forums are in the wrong place,are duplicates or are a thread that should not have been started.

    Look no further than the Windows 8 forum....Too many Stickies....Too many threads started where the info would have fit nicely in and existing thread.

    I think I would have post it in the Announcements section ahah, no matter where it is, it was good to know about it. BTW, not complaining, just showing you that it is rather popular today :D

    Shame really MSDN is so expensive in comparison.
    We have no real way for enthusiasts to get cheap legit copies of Microsoft software now.

    Action pack does indeed look good, Can you actually get software with Microsoft virtuala academy? it looks to be just training to me.

    Cheers for the links, some good stuff there!

    Does anybody know what has happened in the past? MS renewed Technet subscriptions until 2013-08-31. A valid subscription of that day got 90 Days extra meaning 30th November 2014. But a lot of subscriptions must have come to its end before that. Have the software stopped working?

    no, the software will continue to work, and ALL remaining keys that technet still has, will be given to subscribers.
