    To use dreamspark you need to be enrolled in a university. For some reason there are no community colleges.

    Thanks Anand for the huge resource.I think 95% of the Indian students are not aware of this program by MS.They only know how to search in torrents.

    ^^ That is because all those who went to partner centers to get stuff under DreamSpark came back dissapointed.

    Though the IEEE program works perfectly, I have tried it.

    I've had a couple of blog readers & friends telling me that the MS partners ie. NIIT etc. the ones who are supposed to be the offline distributors told whoever went there that they were not aware of any such offer.
