Is there anything better out?
I'm looking lol..
It's decent. I went ahead with the Technet subscription and gotten a bunch of software and 10 keys per version, but it was $241 plus tax, but worth it for me. If I need a key I have plenty to use now.
I don't need a bunch of software, I just need win 7 lol..
I'm not even sure what the software is.
I looked at their site but there was to much info on things not pertaining to anything that I need.
I assumed it was more for businesses.
I need DX 11...lol
Don't have $241 to spend on an OS right now unfortunately .
Not sure how the keys benefit me.
I could install it on as many machines as i want to?
I do have 2 computers, but still i could get 2 full versions of 7 for 180 not 240.
I'm sure I could use the full version to reinstall 7 on my pc as many times as I need anyway.
Theres no limit to activations that I'm aware of.
I'm very worried I don't understand something here..lol..
Like there might be some problems I may end up facing due to my ignorance of the subject.
technet gets you 10 keys for just about every MS program. win XP, vista, 7 (10 keys of every version, mind you), server OS keys, office, etc etc.
can you get 2 copies of 7 ultimate with office 2010 for $180?
since technet is a subscription, how often do you have to renew it?
Technically each year, however, based on the threads around this subject your keys are good for life. There are some obvious rules, but for the most part it's a great deal.
You're not supposed to use what you get on Technet for production machines, that's something neat I learned recently. I guess that rule is broken thousands of times a day though LOL.
This is correct. You are also suppose to be in the IT industry.
Aren't we all?
lol ever since i bought a pc i joined the IT industry.
it's funny when you end up on the phone with microsoft support and you start answering their questions for them.
I had this last girl so frazzled I told her she answered all of my questions "lied" and left.
I felt bad...lol
Technet is great for those it applies to.
The limitations for technet is that you're meant to use the keys for yourself - you know, if you ran a PC store every PC for the store could use a key, but you cant sell the keys off in the machines you sell.
That said, most of my family runs off one technet account - the keys werent sold, they're on loan from the family member with the account (who i guess we could say, built the machines and loaned them out)
