    Hello,
    This is my first proper thread really but i just wanted to tell everyone that you can get windows 7 for £30 if your in the UK and that your a student with an ac.uk college/univeristy email address. Thats for use who dont want to download it and find a crack for it because this is a blackhat forum ;) haha but i thought i'd just share it with use :)

    great find, most universities let their students purchase it at a very good discount. I was able to purchase a copy of windows xp pro like 2 years ago for 9$ and it was a legit copy haha.

    Don't start me off about Windows 7!! :rolleyes:

    I purchased an HP a couple of months ago with a "free" upgrade to Windows 7 included.

    I've now discovered that it is going to cost £21.99 for postage and packaging!! :frusty:

    Hence, £30 is a great price for those students who want it.

    Saw a link on my schools page the other day for windows for $30 (not £30).

    But given it's windows, it's still $30 more than I'm gonna pay. :p

    is anyone actually going to use Win7 anyway?

    Thank god i never had to use Vista for more than 10 minutes at a time, otherwise id have gone insane. One of the biggest hunks of shit M$ ever released. Wouldnt want to think what Win7 is going to be like.

    Thanks for the share tho! Id probably buy it and ebay it if i had a student email.

    For all of you do the custom install delete the C partition and do a fresh install. That is if you want to do a full install. The full version is on the upgrade disk. Oh and I heard the PB and other torrents were put out there by MS to dial home for a later round up.

    Yeah, a lot of companies do that now. That's why you pay attention and only get torrents from known uploaders.

    FYI

    Here in the U.S., I am a member of my University Alumni Association. One of the perks is and .edu email address. This is the main requirements to get the student discount. If you do not have an .edu email address, you have to do other things, like emailing a student ID card.

    Anyway, I tested this and got my Windows 7 Student Offer email.

    Can you order several copies or can you only get one per person?

    i've not tried yet because i dont get paid till friday but i would think you'll only be able to buy 1, but if you want more then one copy im sure you can find some one in your college/uni that will give you there email address to get another one :)
