So, you are saying that if I can sign up for a eCareers course @ £79 (if deal), I can get an NUS card, then get an ISIC card?? Don't you need a .ac.uk email address to verify student status sometimes??

Hmm.. possibilities.. half price spotify, cheap software.. etc.. etc..
Nice find flegg, did you get any training books? like server 2012 books from ecareers?
Thanks everyone, have updated the original post to reflect the new 8.1 discovery :)
I can confirm Windows 8.1 Embedded works perfectly as a desktop operating system. It's exactly the same as any other version of Windows 8.1 but apparently has a few additional things which I have not really noticed.
Thanks OP good find, heat added.

Yeah, if you're on an IT/Computing course at university then you will be made aware of the free tools. Plus if your university if apart of this DreamSpark program you can also get Windows 8 OS for free too etc.
Don't all developer students know about this? But yeah, it's a great deal. Visual Studio is the best.

Thank you, jordanc93. I discovered this too. I am searching now for a good free backup software for my client computers. Anyway it is strange that such an expensive software has less possibilities than the cheaper version (Essentials), at least from a personal or small's business point of view.

I made my account using my NUS extra card and it was OK. I try to upgrade my HP Microserver from Home Server to this, but seems like it is more complicated than I tought. For exemple, I don't know how to connect the client computers to the server (like with http:///connect on WHS).
Windows Server 2012 is more aimed towards network managers/IT professionals and as such isn't designed with consumers in mind. Unlike Windows Homeserver, Windows Server 2012 does not have a client connect utility. The only feature it has that allows you to connect your computers to the server is active directory and even then Windows Server 2012 won't do some of the things that Windows Homeserver can do such as auto backup of your pc's and remote access to files through the web browser. I would stick with Windows Homeserver as it is aimed more towards the consumer and has easy to use built in tools to connect your computers to it. Windows Homeserver is a modified version of Windows server 2003/2008 which has been made easy for the general consumer to use.
thanks.will try rhis out

Shame they waited until now to do so. Just two weeks ago it was free to pretty much all but the UK (of those on Dreamspark of course), so had to get a free 7 license and pay the £25 to upgrade.
Hot!!!
Yes it is free but your uni faculty must be registered and then they must give you a login.

I wouldn't use Windows 8 even if MS paid me.

Terrible OS.


Except the forced metro bit it's better than Win 7 and all previous OSs.

Have you guys actually tried Windows 8? ...I thought it was cr&p until I customised it to the way I like because there are many ways to get rid of that Metro/tile screen and just boot straight into the desktop and having it look like windows 7 or xp if thats ur thing...and it is much more slicker and takes less space then windows 7 and has nifty features

Just got me office for mac for £9 as academic staff! Amazing!

Next cheapest option was £70 via student and teacher edition.

Also got Maple and Stata for free!


Can't fault it (if you have a university log on)- also not students and staff pay differently (mine is a work at home license - technically not for non-work use)
Was able to get this through you when I was doing a Maths degree
My pleasure to all who appreciated me posting this deal, many thanks :)

Seriously, you guys need to grab this even if you don't see an immediate use for it.

It's a chance to run a $5000 server OS on your Microserver.

think it also includes the licenses to run the virtual machines.
Short version, datacenter is designed to run as a hyper-v server with an unlimited (except by hardware) number of virtual Windows Servers running on it. 2012 Standard only allows 2 virtual servers per license.

can we just stop posting these deals , it's the same every week.


Agreed. Once you go silver you will automatically be offered 1 month for £1 deals. That's how I'm doing Gold from now on.


I was gold with the other recent deal and still got the offer hence why it got so hot if this is the same than a cracking deal!!!

some people are so misinformed. If you ever read the news article instead of skimming it you would realise it was all a phishing scam, where morons would enter their details such as emails and passwords for xbox live through a website which was emailed to them supposedly from "xbox" At no point were details of credit cards taken from microsoft... sigh.


i actually did read the article and in the newspaper I read it said it was mostly phising scams, HOWEVER some accounts were in fact hacked and money had been taken. You were also advised to keep an eye on your bank accounts, and also change your password for your own security.

So dont tell me I didnt read the article.

my account was hacked and i hadn't been on live for a couple of months.got my points back but still haven't got my £51.00 back yet.
hacked on oct3rd
You will mostly find this is for silver members - i was gold up until last week and i've never seen any of these offers on the dashboard. However, this popped up for me last night!

..and to clarify, phishing & hacking are totally different. I would always think twice before passing on info from the sun as knowledge!!
I got this yesterday. It was just there on the dashboard. I only had silver when I upgraded, don't know if this makes any difference.
39.99 for me too. Anyone tested this? Got instructions?

From experience, I believe these offers only appear whilst you have an active subscription which is due to expire or due for renewal. But most importantly, promotional offers are rewarded based on account activity, ie: gamerscores, time spent on xbox live etc.

Also I think one has to have an valid credit/debit card on the account.

So if your subscription has ran out, or you previously paid with a redeem code, you probably wont receive an offer with any siginificant saving.

I called xbox direct a few months back to cancel auto renew, and they offered me £26.00 or something for 12 months if i renewed. I declined at the time a I had a few redeem codes laying about. I called them today, and cause I dont have an active Gold account, they cannot offer me anything....Wounded!!!

Mine's run out and I'm waiting for a good offer to appear, it only ran out on the 1st though. How long had you been reverted back to free xbox live before the offer showed then?

My Gold expired on the 1st of sept also misterjoint, must be as jamesdew says that they make offers account specific :S
Showing at £24 for me too... pity I've already bought the Tesco deal for £25ish. Oh well! Expected this to happen...

No such thing as a *best one. Just go for one you are interested in or you think will help with your career. Ebay is good to buy 2nd hand resources / materials. Really it's just a textbook that you need and some background knowledge. Hope this helps.
Just wondering, how do we know which is the best one to choose? I have the list but unsure of which one to go for?

Once I have chosen how to do find the resources to be able to pass it?

Thanks,
I would like to believe you will achieve MCITP after doing the exam.

Not too sure about the friend thing, I don't want to risk getting my friend into trouble, otherwise I would've done it too.
I had given my exam of 070-432 successfully passed around a month ago, now i am planning to give 072-450 by using dream spark voucher scheme - can any one tell me after getting 072-450 - can i become MCITP , because prerequisite of 070-450 is 070-432 but now i am giving 072-450:(:(

Second thing i want to ask with you guys can i use my friend dream spark voucher to give 072-450?

You can't run a website on SQL Sever Developer edition


I don't think that this particular license is really intended for 'Production' use. Don't overlook the fact that SQL Server Express (2008 R2) is free to all, and can handle databases up to 10GB in size.
