Microsoft releases dev software to students

DreamSparkIn their journey to get everyone hooked on their dev tools, Microsoft has rolled out DreamSpark, a site where students can download:

  • Visual Studio 2008
  • Expression Studio
  • Windows Server 2003
  • XNA Game Studio 2.0
  • These products are great for folks who are just starting out in development and design. They are free to students on a 12 month renewable basis for as long as you are a student.

    **Update: if your school isn’t in the preexisting list you can go through JourneyEd to verify student status as well.
