You won't believe, for a second the same thing came to my mind while snipping that screenshot, that someone might point it out! :P
Would do it if I could, but can't.

I think with TechNet and MSDN, you don't have to pay for Windows, Office, etc. I guess you are provided a few keys to install. This is why I want a TechNet subscription, it's cheaper than buying a new OS, Office, and other expensive Microsoft products. So... anyone with a subscription... was a right?

In a way yes, in the long run you save a lot of money

you get up to 10 keys


I said it was around that, depending on the product. Some even give you Volume Licence Keys which can be used as many times as you want

I have a TechNet Plus Direct Subscription...Retail.
Have been lucky enough coz of my work profile, I've been getting these subscriptions for free for the last 3 years. :)

Right. Actually there are two types of subscriptions:
  • TechNet Plus Direct: Only Downloads available, no DVD shipment.
  • TechNet Plus Single User: DVD shipment available.

Once I have received all the keys that I'm going to get I might offer one (maybe two) up to WinMatrix Members, Ill never use them all.

LOL. They're probably listening to your conversation right now. Don't download too much or the FBI, CIA,etc...might break down your doors and torture you.

Governments don't track people over copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is a civil case, not a criminal one.
