Downloading Now!


I finally got a TechNet Subscription.
I got it through the Exam Insurance Offer. It cost me around £12.
With it I get EVERY piece of MS software from Vista, Longhorn, Office, to Virtual Server.

I am so happy!:D

No I won't share with you, so don't ask.

The MS download manager is pretty cool.

not bad to become a TechNet Plus Direct use for $350 per year, and 250 to renew...you can get over $5000+ worth of software.

Pricing and Licensing

The USD estimated retail prices (ERP) for a 1-year subscription are:
License Type----- New -----Renew
TechNet Plus Direct ----- $349 ----- $249
TechNet Plus Single User -----$499 ----- $399
TechNet Plus Single Server----- $999 ----- $749
