[Microsoft] DEAD: ACM.org MSDNAA Access for 19$US (Windows 7, Vista) *Free calculator*

People should hold off buying this, it appears that ACM is no longer offering Windows 7 to its MSDNAA members.
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


[QUOTE]Dear Students,

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.

Have a look: http://www.acm.org/membership/panel?pageIndex=2

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)

Thanks to versusqc:
Use this form and get a free calculator (while supplies last):
https://campus.acm.org/public/QJStuWith ... pe=Student

http://campus.acm.org/public/quickjoin/interim.cfm --- original student membership form --- $ 19

- sign up and ACM will send you log-in information
- then you will have to wait till ACM lets you opt-in for MSDNAA membership --- it will take approx. 1 to 2 days --- to check if you can "opt-in", log in to "MyACM" and under the "My Services" tab you will find a light blue box saying "Access ACM

You should not highlight Windows 7 Ultimate RC as people should NOT be downloading that. Get Windows 7 Professional.

Yeah. Windows 7 Ultimate RC is the Release Candidate. It will start shutting itself down every 2 hours starting in March 2010 and stop working altogether in June 2010. I'm on it right now but as soon as my school gets me Windows 7 Professional (not up yet in our MSDNAA site) I'll be switching to it.

Available now but some schools haven't updated. Contact your program administrator if it isn't up yet.

This is a good find but how you are using the software is illegal. MSDN subscription licenses are only meant for development or testing purposes, not for regular use. If you're going to spend $19 to get software and break the EULA, you might as download Microsoft software from bittorrent and run patches to remove protection.

Although I agree with you, there are many more ways this can benefit people. for example, if you are doing your MCSE exams, you are technically using for testing purposes, but do not have access to these softwares....

Off Topic: has anyone here used an ACM subscription before? I've found a lot of articles/papers linked to ACM in the past but used alternative sources because I didn't have a subscription (and didn't want to pay).

What exactly is this ACM membership? Why is it so cheap to get MSDNAA access? Also, how come they have much more software than normal MSDNAA (ie. from UW).

From what I read and understood, is that most universities post only the software that they support.
