Hi all,

Interested in a TechNet subscription.. you can use the coupon code TNSUMMER09 to get a subscription for $342 NZD (down from $570).  That is a 40% discount.  I'm not too sure how long the coupon lasts.

Sorry about that, didn't realize it was in breach of the license.  Smile  I guess it should also be mentioned that TechNet is specifically for IT Pros who are using the software for non-production purposes (i.e. is it not for home or development use).

Reality is, Technet and MSDN subscriptions are worth the money spent on them. You have access to all developer software and OS (MSDN) and software for demos and testing (Technet). Great value for all software you can eat (on a single user license basis - remember it's not company wide!).

And it is great value if you want to upgrade 3 home PCs to Windows 7 when it RTMs too.  But I guess that is breaching their T&Cs?

I am not sure of the Technet T&Cs but the MSDN license allows Microsoft Office to be used for development purposes, and one copy for use on a business function - on your company or personal laptop for example (if you are self employed).

Not sure about OS licenses. You have to check. But of course you could be "testing" different hardware with your "new" application, right?

Yeah I think it is in breach although they do not enforce it.  I believe you are eligible for 10 product keys for each product.  As above if you are "testing" then it is okay..

Here is the full license terms:

Yeah, read those last week when I was first aware of the discount code.  But I might as well have read the French version of them at the bottom they made that much sense...

Thanks mate,

I have been hinting to the Microsoft guys for a while for such a code but to no avail.

Cheers

Mauricio - possible to get any info from your contacts about this Home Premium Family Pack rumour doing the rounds? If I can get a version like that which I can install on my 3 machines then that would be my preference.

I'm not too sure what you're asking but try entering the code here:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/bb892754.aspx

Most of those ones above are not available to the public.  The $372 deal is for "TechNet Plus Direct", although it also gives you a discount on "TechNet Plus Single User Subscriptions" (I don't know the difference between the two).  Hope that helps.

Direct give you access to the downloads section, Single User give you access and also posts out media. Last time I found that I was too impatient for the media and nearly always downloaded what I wanted before any disks arrived.

One is just downloaded software only, and the other one offers physical discs mailed to you. That's about as much info as I know.

Does anyone know if W7 RTM will be available via this Technet sub from (or close to) RTM date?

I believe Microsoft released a press release stating that it would be available on MSDN and TechNet this month.
