Omg guys check this out. I got it in my Univeristy's e-mail account.

Hello,

Welcome! You have been registered in your university/college ELMS

How Does it Work?

Guess what the hell I just got a product key for!!!!

Windows 7 professional baby!!!

Hahah thing is I'm going to download it this Friday when I get home. I want to make a backup of everything in my PC just in case. It's time to reformat anyway.

Oh did I told you guys the best part....

it was freaking free!!! I get to choose other Microsoft products as well and there's Windows Vista and XP professional etc.

i hope this is a full version and not some damn upgrade.

Great isn't it? I have been taking advantage of it since '07 with Vista. I got two copies of Win7 for my two computers for free! I almost don't want to graduate!

This is great. I'm not used to this kind of stuff. I'm so relieved that you guys wrote that.

Hey Nathan. Am I limited to just 1 copy of Windows 7 per account? Or can I download as much as I want? I told my dad about it and he was dubious of the whole thing. It would be nice to surprise him with a copy of Windows 7. Maybe save him some cash from buying it for Christmas.

I was able to get two keys from my MSDNAA through my school, one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit. Both keys work with both versions.
