    Lightbulb Microsoft offering free TechNet Plus subscription

    TechNet Plus is a Microsoft service which offers full, legitimate versions of software to IT professionals (or whoever wants to pay for it). The subscription usually saps your wallet for $349 US, if you only want downloads, or $599 if you'd like disc versions too. However, as you can see, this is pretty pricey... the good news is, if you live in the US, the UK or Canada, our friendly Redmond-based software company has you covered.

    You will need the following information: First name, last lame, street address, city/town, state, postal code, email, and contact phone number. You'll obviously need a valid address if you wish to get CD/DVD media, but otherwise you can use any for the direct software downloads.

    Thanks for this but out of interest it says I can download Vista ultimate x64 retail for free with a serial number. Is this the full package or will it be a limited trial???

    Addition:: (Just spoke with Corina from TechNet and she said "yes, it's the full retail" so all is good).

    Did you try to get a key?
    It seems, as mentioned on some blogs, that this offer is good until Sep. 30, and is available to a select few, rather than the public.
