+1 for that. I just got settled with a technet subscription, and I'm enjoying my fully licensed install of Windows 7 Ultimate. It's a settling feeling to not have to reinstall again for quite some time.

Well I'm already settled into my RC so it doesn't matter when I format.

I'm still looking between my friends to see who's interested in sharing the Technet subscription with me. $300 CAD is too expensive for me.

What would I do with 10 keys though? And no way in hell am I going to take money out of my bank account. I prefer to deposit money and save up for university or w/e. Only time I took money out is when I'm getting expensive things like a computer.

I already have one friend that's interested in splitting the TechNet subscription.
