This post is old… It's probably been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the year. That probably means that there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any adivce is out of date and irrelevant. Or more likely, it was the wafflings of bored-past me with too much time on his hands. If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.
For a limited time Microsoft will be offering a full copy of Windows Home Premium for just £30 to all students around the world. All you need in the UK to get this deal is an email address from a university of a college of higher education. You can read the spiel that Microsoft wrote below.
Yes I know I am a Mac user, however I still think that I will be going for this deal, I am running XP on my media centre, so an upgrade to Windows 7 would be quite nice I think! They do have very nice media centre software included!
We are offering students the opportunity to buy Windows 7 for an amazing discounted price, £30 for either Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional.
You can take advantage of this offer from September 30th but you will need to be quick as it is for a limited time only and is only eligible to college and university students with a valid .EDU email address (an email address given by the college or university, for example: Suzanne@leeds.ac.uk ), a PC that is currently running a genuine copy of Windows Vista or Windows XP and can run Windows 7.
This offer will be available from 1st October so please check back then for details on how to take advantage of this great offer.
Admittedly they can't quite work out if will be released on 30th Sept or 1st Oct... so to be safe check both days! For more details head over to: microsoft.com
