    I don't know whether Microsoft has any problems with us distributing their copyrighted eBooks. But legally, they're not ours to distribute, regardless of whether they are free or not.

    I hate those buggers
    EVERY ebook they have given away free so far has been one I already owned in realtree(tm)

    Didnt stop me downloading them anyway.. BUT!
    give me something cooool, give me the new unreleased Hyper-V one! :)
    Server Core was this month, Got
    NAP was last month, Got
    IPv6 section edition was the month before, GOT!

    Still, nice of them to give everyone else these awesome books, and they are good REFERENCE books not just cert cramming stuff that serves little purpose post qualified
