So if i logged into the site using my hotmail.com account than how do i really get the technet account.
The short answer is "yes, Technet subscribers can log on to Technet with their Windows Live ID."
The long answer is "Yes, *Technet subscribers* (ie. users who have purchased Technet access) can log on to Technet with their Windows Live ID."
Windows Live ID's are a "single sign-on" thing for Microsoft. It does not automatically grant you access to everything though. There are still pay services that require additional membership before your Windows Live ID will allow you access to those things.
