Re: TechNet Plus Direct
To add: MSDN licenses cannot be used for production runs, they are for development purposes only. Ie. you can test e.g. Exchange server locally (as many copies as you wish), but you cannot install it on your production server and let it handle incomming emails on regular basis. Same applies to SQL Server 2008, etc.
