    Dreamspark is simple, it's all about giving students Microsoft professional-level developer and design tools at no charge so you can chase your dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology - or just get a head start on your career.

    What Microsoft software does this site offer?

    Currently, you can get the following Microsoft tools from DreamSpark:

    * Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition
    * Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition

    * Microsoft Expression Studio 2 Trial Edition (includes Web, Blend, Media, and Design)
    * Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition
    * Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition
    * IT Academy Student Pass

    Oh, and by the way? These are the serious versions for serious people. We’re talking, the big-time stuff.

    In addition, in the spirit of cool things to download and “one-stop shopping”, you can also download software (currently available on www.microsoft.com at no charge) like:

    * SQL Server 2008 Express Edition
    * Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition
    * XNA Game Studio 2.0 (with 12-month Creators Club Student trial membership)

    It's great, isn't it? I've got myself a license for Server 08 and 03, for when I'm learning more about servers. How cool ^_^. I thought it was a fake to begin with, but nope, it's the real deal.

    It is only for students, so my OU Personal Identifier came in handy here. So to all you OU guys, get yourselves some licenses for stuff! It's freeeeeeeeeeeeee.
