    Well I have mine and using it right now. Glad I pulled the Technet Plus sub handle in June when they offered it for 249. Currently running Win 7 Ultimate X64

    Not much of a difference from the RC IMHO;) I'm using it right now but couldn't tell the difference. The lower right corner of the desktop no longer shows the build number and such;)

    Here's my Desktop;)

    First link's codes have already been tested and there are two working codes in the first post.

    Second link's code does not work.

    Tech Net Plus subscriptions for $349 for the first year (25% off Coupon Codes in first post) and $249 to renew each year. You get retail keys for most of the software listed here.
     
    95Viper and Easy Rhino say thanks.

    Unless you want multiple copies of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, or Office 2007/2010 or a combination of those, then it's not worth it.

    Just remember that the keys you get are full retail keys, so they never expire, even if you cancel your subscription.

    No. That's the one thing you absolutely cannot do.

    Tech Net is made for IT Professionals, so people who have a lot of computers. I currently have 3, so it's worth it for me.

    My TechNet sub went live yesterday and I don't quite understand something about the keys.

    1. For a product like Win7, XP etc, I can just keep clicking for new keys. Does the system have a limit on how many keys it generates? Are those keys linked to my account?

    2. Also, what exactly are the static activation keys? Are they the same for everyone?

    Also, I can't seem to access my subscription at the moment, as in manage my sub, or access the downloads page etc - it just reports an error and doesn't specify what that is. Logging out/in again doesn't help and nor does clearing the temp files or cookies.

    Is the site not working properly, or is it something at my end?

    EDIT: the site is back.

    You get 10 keys per account per version per product. Static activation keys might be the same, or they might be assigned to you.

    i just signed up with the code " tnscp09n30 " and got 30% off of the Australian price


    $512 reduced to $358 it makes it worth it for all the pc's in the house

    dont know if it was just me but i couldn't see USA in the list

    It's supposed to be for yourself. Read their terms before you do something you could regret.
