One of the many benefits of being a student, will download tonight! Still yet to try Windows 8.
Information Technology as well as any other degree that has a fair number of IT or Computer Science courses mixed in.

That is correct. It was originally MSDNAA , then they moved over to "On The Hub (combined with DreamSpark)". However please note that there is a seperate section for Dreamspark. as well: https://www.dreamspark.com/
Dreamspark gets you additional software for free as a student.
Pity ACM and IEEE don't give Windows 7/8 that would have been even more epic for me....
Nonetheless still epic lol... I have 3 MSDNAA Accounts + Dreamspark so most of the software I get I have 3x the keys...
Time to buy a external and stackup on my Microsoft software and keys.

Is that the new one?
It hasn't been updated as yet, when it gets updated you will get the Pro version of Windows 8, same as with Windows 7.
