[Microsoft] DEAD: ACM.org MSDNAA Access for 19$US (Windows 7, Vista) *Free calculator*
For the people that purchased it and retrieved the keys, they seem to work fine, and you can still use them. If you retrieved all 8 keys, you're set, if you didn't... no more.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DEAL JOIN THE IEEE.org. SEE THREAD HERE
This is a heads-up that Windows 7 Final Release has been taken out of the Microsoft Developer Academic Alliance package offered to ACM Student Members. Windows 7 Beta remains. There has been a very large influx of NON-computing students joining ACM to just get Windows 7. Windows 7 Beta remains.
The Developer AA package is really JUST for computing-type students. Microsoft offers another package Dream Spark to all non-computing students. So, it looks like the viral nature of the net has, "yes," told lots of students about this offer, and, "no," we don't want every student.
I encourage you to check our ACM Student Membership for "real." It is a great bargain -through the Developer AA Package there's still a lot fo software for free, and, you can also download Sun and CA stuff. And, you are eligible for e-mentoring, a digital edition of Communications of the ACM (that's really "hot"), Crossroads, etc., etc.

So if anyone is interested in getting access to the MSDNAA website this is the cheapest route. You get two copies of Windows 7, plus all the other software available. Posted below.
- I'll keep this thread updated with more information if users post.
SlickDeals user Wikipost posted this (all credit should go to him):
ACM signup provides EIGHT licenses (4 English, 2 Chinese, 2 Spanish, users are reporting that they are interchangeable).
you can join ACM for $ 19 for a 1year membership with MSDN AA software access (same software)
