Windows 8 for cheap? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Its my understanding that one needs only to be a student at some form of school to be eligible for dreamspark, not necessarily a college that provides a .edu email address, or a college or university at all for that matter.

Yea, often reinstallation is not going to work for me, I'd just rather stick with 7 rather than hassle every 90 days. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I'm not a student at all, but your school has to be eligible, and you have to be a student of something tech-oriented.

Perhaps you found someone who was able to do any of that and would be willing to give a way one more copy? I'm likely to be unable to afford it to mid-2014 or so, I could use a copy. I loved the OS.
