Free Microsoft Software for College Students Update

Posted by denglishbi on January 18, 2009

I had done a posting last February, “Free Microsoft Software for College Students”, and I just wanted to send an update in regards to this.  The Microsoft DreamSpark program offers free developer and design tools to students.  The software available is Visual Studio Professional 2005 and 2008, XNA Game Studio 2.0, Microsoft Expression Studio 2, Windows Server 2003 and 2008 Standard Editions, and SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition.

The other free tools that are available to anyone are Visual C# 2008, Visual C++ 2008, Visual Basic 2008, Visual Web Developer 2008, SQL Server 2008 Express Editions, and Microsoft Virtual PC.

Express Editions

Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

Another deal for students is to get Office 2007 Ultimate 2007 for $59.95, Windows Vista Ultimate Upgrade for $64.95, or Office Visio Professional 2007 for $55.95 – Microsoft Discounts for US Students.  Not a bad deal.  So if you know anyone that is a student you might want to give them a callNerd
