Haven't actually bought mine yet. Have read a previous thread for this same deal that says they don't check, and only state that somebody in your house must be in education.

Pretty good deals though for me, think I'm guna go for it.

I've amended the title, you use it to upgrade from XP or Vista

Why?

I don't really understand the benefit of the offer. If you have XP you have a perfectly good OS. Why upgrade? If they were offering the full retail versions for these prices then I get it. But they don't

You can't do an upgrade from windows xp to 7 so you in fact do a clean install.

As I understand it the upgrade part refers to the license being an upgrade so technically you still need to have a valid windows xp or vista license.

http://students.pugh.co.uk/ - also offer a similar deal

anyone know if you can use a Win7 full version DVD (not the upgrade version) with integrated SP1 & tell it to upgrade on top of the old OS then use the upgrade key you bought to validate?

Not for very much longer!!!!
I had an email from S4S this morning saying that Microsoft are stopping the scheme, that allows this to happen, from March.

Software4Students: Microsoft Authorized Education Reseller.



Important Notice for S4S Customers!

Today we have an important annoucement for all of our S4S fans in relation to Microsoft products availability.

As many of you know, Software4Students has been offering the best discounts in Microsoft software for students and their parents since 2006.

Over the years, we have been offering discounts of up to 90%, for full versions of Microsoft software. However, Microsoft has recently announced that the programme that was making this possible will come to an end on March 31st, 2012.

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage all those who still do not have Windows 7 or Microsoft Office 2010 installed in their laptops or PCs to take advantage of this last chance to enjoy amazing discounts like the ones below.

Surely you could say that about anything? You have a perfectly good car from 5years ago why do you want a new one? I don't know of many people who would go back to Xp after using W7 TBH, indeed Xp was a good OS but IMHO W7 is the best OS ever from MS.

If they were offering the full retail versions for these prices then I get it. But they don't


As others say it is perfectly easy to do a full new install using the upgrade discs, plenty of help on the net.

if you've got XP it's going to be a struggle to run W7, with vista maybe your PC can handle W7, but why pay if you can get a FREE OS and FREE software: just check this page http://distrowatch.com/
over 100 OS are available for FREE.

Yes.

Why?

For the same reason anybody sells anything I suppose, because there is a demand for it, and money to be made in meeting that demand. I'm no economist, mind you.

Simple answer is Yes! You would have to be quite a lonely person not to be eligible, people with Children or Grandchildren can get it, even if you are a guardian of a child you are ok, in any case they don't check!

Now watch for all the perfect people who have never ever copied anything or recorded a film off the TV and kept it to come along and tell you you are practically a thief if you buy a copy and are not technically 100% eligible for the deal! Lol

Microsoft would prefer people to buy this at a reduced rate than some pirate copy off the market or via Ebay.

I think Microsoft would prefer people to buy the software that meets the licence criterior - technically those that buy this software that don't meet the criterior are using unlicenced software. Clearly Microsoft would prefer them to use a correct version.

Do they prefer people buy Software4students software when they shouldn't? or instead of pirated software? well again, I'm sure they'd prefer you purchased the correct licence.... which is probably why they're stopping this scheme as so many people buying it aren't applicable.

That's what I suspect Microsoft and their legal team would prefer!

Now before you jump down my throat - I use Windows 7 Enterprise edition on a technet licence from a mate so I'm no angel

:D

Quite right. It's this reason why I still drive a 1963 Ford Cortina.
