Question. So say someone I share with becomes a jerk and takes like 5 copies of Windows 7 Ultimate instead of the 2 to 3 that we agreed on, is there anyway to figure out who took them? I don't think there is since the subscription belongs to one e-mail account. Unless I take them all and give the keys to them in person....that way it'd make everything easier.

And just to make sure, Office 2010 should be on Technet right?
Technically 'sharing' IS against the ToU. Easy there tiger ;)

I wouldnt share my windows live ID with anyone if I were you. Maybe tell them the key, but dont let them log in as you. Sharing the link for the download DOES work to get a copy of the ISO, however....

and you can just keep the ISO on your hard drive or burn it onto a DVD.

Just picked one up with the 25% discount.

Figured I was going to get a couple copies of Windows 7 anyways. I get Office Enterprise as a part of our work site license, but I will be using this for myself to mess around with.

I did the same about 2 weeks ago. LOVING it. Copies of Office 2k7 on both PC's...vista ultimate on both, and Im going to put together a sweet-ass NAS server (with Server 08) and HTPC with another copy of win7 too.

all for 250 bills!

Aren't you a high school student? Isn't there a diligent, hard-a$$ network admin that will kick your butt for doing that?

Yes I am, but my school is different. It's a self study school. Only one in Toronto I believe. Now you know where I go for school.

Just to get this right, you get 1 key for Windows 7 Ultimate. Then you're allowed to use that key 10 times?

And I can just download the iso and burn it onto a dvd and use whenever I need a new OS of W7 Ultimate?
