    Does anyone know what features would be included on 'Academic' software compared with software considered 'non-academic.' I have looked on the MS website without any luck.

    Thanks

    The Academic flag is generally a licensing only flag that adjusts who exactly can buy it and at what cost
    you should find it is a copy of ISA 2006 Standard with a slightly different license affecting it, that's about it

    The academic part is only talking about the licencing agreement and price. This is a whole lot cheaper than the retail version and legally your limited to using it in an established educational centre (eg school, college, etc) only. Apart from that nothing to my knowledge.

    That's different mate. They are specific editions of software aimed at students & teachers so MS don't appear totally evil. :)

    The Academic license versions of things like ISA are aimed at organisations not individuals. You could probably buy an academic/educational version of ISA or any other MS application through a reseller but unless you qualify as that type of organisation you might as well have downloaded a pirate version as you wouldn't be licensed. Your reseller should advise you of this though really.

    I see your point I was just trying to provide generally useful info for people ! :D

    If you follow the link you will get to here :-

    http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/buy/licensing/buying.mspx

    It details the various options, it appears all current server licenses must be bought regardless of location but that a discount can be obtained...
