Microsoft DreamSpark

Have you heard of Microsoft DreamSpark? Basically any high school or college student can download professional Microsoft developer, designer, and gaming software through DreamSpark at no charge. Titles currently include:
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition
  • Microsoft Expression Studio 1.0
  • Microsoft Expression Studio 2 Trial Edition (includes Web, Blend, Media, and Design)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition
  • IT Academy Student Pass
The idea is to encourage student creativity and hopefully foster student interest in science, mathematics, programming, etc. Universities can learn more through the University Administrator FAQ. (Thanks for the tip, Peggy!)
