    When I worked at Bestbuy, I was told by one of the more knowledgeable people in my department about the Microsoft Technet Subscription. Supposedly you pay $350 for a 1 year subscription, once paid you get a number of valid keys for Microsoft Products, I believe the guy told me that you get like 10 Vista Ultimate keys, and 10 Windows XP Pro keys, and that even after the 1 year subscription is up , that the keys are not deactivated. The only reason to keep paying the $350 per year is if a new product comes out that you want to try

    Now the other thing is that these products dont come with any support, But I could really care less, If I am getting enough keys to put valid OS's on all my machines, plus I get stuff like Office and Money, then why would I care.

    Anyways does anyone know how true this all is? I just would rather put $350 towards this subscription then towards 1 OS on Newegg.

    Sounds too good to be true [​IMG]

    I have a subscription to Technet. I have 500 Vista activations with it, not sure how much it costs as I got it through work.

    But yeah, it works like it says. You can download ISO's of any OS/Office and even Server applications as much as you want and you have license keys for all of it available to you.

    You won't be getting a true license however, as its meant for testing and evaluation purposes only.
