    Anyone got a tech net subscription? Seems a lot of money but you get all the software you need which is a bonus. Is windows 7 included as it seems daft to spend over £100 on windows 7 then a tech net subscription which is £240.

    Yes, I've had a TN sub for 3 years now, and Win7 is available on it for download.

    Seems like a great deal if you're planning to create a home lab :)

    If you decide to go for a TN sub, then try this promo code TNWIN7RTM.
    I think it still is valid.

    A good tip for when you need to renew your subscription is to wait as long as possible before doing it. When I did this they rang me up and gave me 3 months extra for free. 15 months for the price of 12. :thumbleft

    i signed up lastweek

    the voucher codes are often on the technet home page :tune

    it brilliant to have for labs ... beats reinstalling timed out evaluations all the time.

    i would prefer VL's rather than retail need to speak to MS about that one!

    And.. as we are limited here on data downloads would need to have the media posted.

    Forked out for it the other week. Was well worth the money. I chose the media-less subscription and it's fantastic for lab work. It's just a great resource in general. I hear a lot of people abuse it though. It's an unsung gem for 270 quid.

    Hi
    I was just thinking, how does this technet work. I mean is there any expire date for the technet operating systems, or are they unlimited. Because I know that all the MS OS need some kind of product keys to install and also We have to register the OS. So, Do I need any of these for the technet OS.
    I hope u understand what I mean.
    Thanks

    When you become a TN subscriber, you get provided with the product keys to activate the products.

    For example, Win 7 has 10 keys available for you to use.

    And each key has 10 activations .. thus giving 100 activations in total ...
