Microsoft offers cheap Windows 7 to UK and US students

In a move that can easily be described as "catch them while they're young", Microsoft will give students in the UK and US an excellent discount on the Windows 7 OS.

The students with a college or university e-mail address will be able to purchase Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional for £30/$30.

God damn, I hope my college qualifies. $30 for Windows 7 is a steal.

They're giving Windows 7 pro away at the technical school I'm going to in Canada. I installed it last week and am pretty damn happy with it so far.

However, my antivirus didn't run anymore and when I called them, I don't think the guy believed I had a legit copy of Windows 7. He just kept saying "Windows 7 isn't out yet and we won't support it till it is." Dink.

We never seem to get any of these awesome deals, except we sometimes we get the student ones. Other then that we pay more then other countries...
