"Microsoft is cutting students a big break on Windows 7. Anyone with .EDU email address can order Windows 7 Home Premium for just $29.99 through January 3, 2010. Here's the interesting part- This deal is being run through Digital River, a company that sells DOWNLOADABLE software. That's right. It appears you can download a final production copy of Windows 7 right now."
Wow - and I thought the 50% off pre-order price for Windows 7 was cheap. Not a bad deal at all if you're a student. I've been using Windows 7 more heavily now, having installed it on my main laptop, and it's a solid OS. I cringe when I have to use XP now...OK, well, I cringed using XP when Vista was out. ;-)
