One copy I got from work, another copy I got from a friend who pays $160 a year to get 10 licenses of every Microsoft product. Both are legit. Yay!

£70. Home premium OEM copy.

I got a student one for £30 but it was bullshit. Claimed to be a stand alone install, but it actually required Vista to be on the computer already. The real kick in the dick tonsils was that 64bit cannot be used to "upgrade" 32bit :squint:

This and tell me more about this bizspark.

https://www.microsoft.com/bizspark/Startup/Signup.aspx

sign up if you started recently, can provide proof (not hard to fake), develop software, and make less that $1million annually.

you get 10 licenses for all software except windows 7, i think you get about 1-3 licenses of windows 7 instead because everyone signed up and cheated the system last year

there is a $100 exit fee once you are done with the program. i emailed them and they do not have a method implemented to people as of yet

I signed up for it as soon as it was avail for the free stuff... But recently (2-3months) they emailed me saying they had gotten rid of the exit fee, and i can renew as often as i like or something.

Because of where I work I get any Microsoft product for free. It is shit pay but sometimes the perks make up for it.
