Microsoft Dreamspark - free professional software for students
« on: December 26, 2008, 09:56:46 pm »
What exactly is Dreamspark?
DreamSpark is simple, it's all about giving students Microsoft professional-level developer and design tools at no charge so you can chase your dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology - or just get a head start on your career.

Most if not all students can apply for Dreamspark - all you need is a way of verifying that you're a student.

The one thing is - most if not all high schools are not listed on Dreamspark's site. Either way, you can still apply - via JourneyEd. It's a free transaction, but it's required to prove you're a student in the US. You have to verify yourself as a student every 12 months on DreamSpark.

Either way, it gives students the power to create and design with software like Visual Studio 2008 Professional, Windows Server 2008, and so on.

Quick note: If you're having issues signing up with Dreamspark, please don't ask me.

No advertising.
Posting a link is not always a negative form of advertising. He?s linking to a useful resource, not his own site.

Also, there is currently no rule against advertising.

It is my opinion that MissingNo is just on this forum to advertise Microsoft products as much as possible.

Microsoft sucks.  Think Different.  Apple forever.

Yep, think different. I <3 my iPod touch and my Performa running OS 8 in the corner.

This thread is so full of religious devotion to OSes that I want to laugh. Or groan.

Use OpenBSD, the free, functional, secure OS!

It is my opinion that CJMiller is just on this forum to scold Staff members for breaking non-existent rules and/or advertise Apple products as much as possible.

Besides, apple is s**t anyway. I had an iPod and I was always annoyed at how I needed special hardware and software to connect it to my computer and transfer music to it. My Philips GoGear device works perfectly fine with a standard USB cable, and it was much less expensive than its Apple equivalent.
