My System Specs

Default Free technet

Thanks to MacJunky for the link...

Not sure what the story behind this is but, it's free technet for a year so who cares!

I signed up, just filled out my info and I'm in.

https://om2.one.microsoft.com/offer/technet_can.aspx

For those of you that don't know what technet is... it's basically all Mircosoft software with .iso downloads, with legit keys for all the software. I have it through my university, now I have it for free here!

Free legit windows for everyone That includes vista ultimate x64 SP2 BTW

Happy downloading. Post here if you need help figuring out the downloads.

Once you download the aspx file, you might be able to open it with IE, but that didn't work for me so get the Microsoft File Transfer Manager found here:


http://transfers.ds.microsoft.com/ft...e/FTMSetup.msi




Install it, and then right click on the default.aspx file and open it with this file transfer manager, and there you go! The download will start once you choose where to stick it.

"this is part of a pilot program that is set to expire on September 30, 2009, which means it's more of a three month deal, but hey, free is free! Currently, the expiration date reads "1/1/1900" but Microsoft is working on fixing that."

This could be true.... either way, that's enough time to get some downloading done, so good idea to save some keys anyways!

Has anyone gotten a key out of this? I can download the .iso files, but they keys don't even show up for me in IE/FF.

Edit: assuming it's cause it's a trial.

Nope, I don't seem to be getting keys either.

Anyone know if these serials have a restricted time period? When getting the keys they are showing as retail, so I'm hoping that it's a full license.
