After banging my head against a wall yesterday trying to professionally
help someone on the ribbon thing on Office 2007 (and me being previously
a XP stalwart), I finally succumbed to the �212.55 purchase of the
professional download product ...

This looks interesting as I'm now very close to the end of my 90-day
trial of Windows 7 and am still trying to work out why it is broken for
usb audio (see my other, old thread about diagnosing a usb problem).

Did it all come through OK? I see the upper url leads to a page that
says US only.
Would it actually enable the installation of 32 and 64-bit Win 7 on a
permanent basis? I was reluctantly looking at purchasing Win 7 Pro full
retail, but this does look a better long term deal as long as MS doesn't
pull the activation sometime in the future.
I do think I qualify morally. I haven't found anything in Win 7 I
actually want, but it would be nice to be able to carry on helping
others as a friend (ie professional in all but taking money!) with their
pro audio problems.

Yes, discount came through fine. :)

I've purchased it as I badly need the experience of so many applications
platforms (mainly Office) that for the last two years I've sadly stuck
my head in the ground - and had that wake up call last week. There are
some learning resources in Technet I'm alo using.

Morally? Yup, perhaps Microsoft should have a scheme that ye have to get
their paperwork countersigned by a person of religious order together
with other heavenly references :-)

I'd try and get er, payment, in a license! Find an unused license. Or
soldier on with the 90 day trials. Or buy a new PC. Or (with great pain)
have a kid ...

Technet is probably a bit OTT and expensive in your situation, unless
you are going to extend your support as a business (and why not?). Oh
and, how do you make music with MS Office? :-)

Can you give us a heads upon what is included or a link? I used to be an
MSDN subscriber but it just became too expensive.

Too old, been there, done that. Costs more than even an MS licence.

Actually, it's not much more expensive than buying a licence for Windows
7 Pro if you buy the full one.
That was the real question... Do you get the option of downloading and
running the full versions of Win 7 64 and 32-bit - for evaluation, of
course, but permanently?
I might be able to justify Technet to myself. I still occasionally refer
to my MDN CD's from 1994 - not for the stuff about Win 3.1, but some of
the basic audio info is still relevant. I also fail to get answers
regularly on the Technet forums

>Oh and, how do you make music with MS Office? :-)

Years ago MS Office made me scream rather than sing, so I'm totally Open
Office here. Which seems to display the MS Spreadsheet of what comes
with Technet in some weird alien font.
