Default Technet Plus Direct

I've seen a few people mention that you can get the Technet Plus Direct subscription, and it will give you access to all of the goodies from MS. I am really confused on what it includes. I want to know if I get that, can I install multiple copies of xp for a few different computers.

It also sounds like you get can Server03 R2 and office, are those included or no?

I have it. You can install each piece of software they provide on up to 10 of your own personal systems. It includes Office (2003 and 2007), Visio, Accounting Apps, Virtual PC, a whole bunch of applications you'll probably never bother with, XP Pro, Server 2003 and a just about all of their server OSes, Vista Business/Premium/Ultra.

For people with multiple systems it's a real bargain.

Thanks for the reply, I think I'm going to order a subscription.

Does this really work? Could I get this and get Vista Ulimate and Office 2007 for all of my home PCs for $350? What is the catch? Are these timed trial software or limited in any way?

I don't see how this could possibly be true. Wouldn't everybody be doing this it is was true?

Not really. If you only have one PC it isn't. Figure that Vista OS will last you 5 years and Office will last you 3. The cost of using the Technet would be 1350 for 5 years. That's more then if you just went out and bought the Ultimate and Office Pro versions of the software.

Now if you have multiple PCs and use Microsoft's other programs that are offered in the package then sure it's worth it.

no... you buy a 1 year subscription and get the programs and keys then you dont need to renew the subscription you still can use the keys and apps!

Even if your keys run out and your subscription has ended you can STILL call them upp and get new keys

well there is a "catch" in a way.. you are just supposed to use the software to "test it out" and then buy the retail version.
But nowhere does it say how much you can "test" it so you can say that you are testing it for 10 years or 20

But the software arent trial or limited in ANY way its the same software that you get if you went out and bought it, exactly the same.
