    Obviously only DreamSpark user can say for sure but if I have to take a guess, I think it's gonna be a permanent key.

    Are you an DreamSpark Premium level user? How was it for Windows 7, 90 days or permanent key?

    As for Windows 7, they only offer Pro version, it's permanent.
    Maybe 90 days is for public download, and permanent is for subscriber (msdn/technet)

    Fancy, I'll have to sign up for this being a student majoring in programming. Thanks for the info.
    August 25th is Guild Wars 2... I don't think I'll be doing much else that day. ^.^

    An instructor must sign you up for the Dreamspark Premium program. And not just any instructor. Look in the Science Department and ask for the instructor that has access to Dreamspark Premium.

    Of course you can, Pro version can be both Retail or Volume channel
    We're going to get Retail key from dreamspark, then just set up the retail Default key :biggrin:

    At least, the EULA changes since retail activation, it becomes complete EULA, not happens with MAK activation

    s**t. My university only has Dreamspark, but not Dreamspark Premium. At least I should be able to get a legit key for Windows Server 2012, just like I did with Server 2008. Oh well :(

    You must be a part of School/University that have Dreamspark Premium subscription
    then you can register to the site and verified by the school's admin
