For people with multiple systems it's a real bargain.
Wow, are you saying I can get up to 10 keys for each software like 10 keys for Windows Vista Ultimate, 10 keys for Office 2007 etc or only have maximum 10 keys for any 10 software for personal use?

Also I want to know do they have Money 2007?

As far as I know you get 1 key per software that you can use on 10 different computers.

I bought a subscription yesterday, just waiting for my code

Just so I am clear....

If I sign up for a year, I can install Vista and Office 2007 on all of the machines in my home? What would happen if I don't renew the subscription after the first year? Would my software and product keys stay activated and continue to work?

Also, is it legal for say my brother and I to split the cost and both utilize the same software and keys?

yes the software and product will stay activated after your subscription runs out.

Well its not legal if MS knew it but they can never find out so yes you can do that
As I said your just supposed to use it as a "test" and then buy the retail version. But you can test it as much as you like and MS wont come after you because they could never prove you were using it for private stuff

and you give me 350$ so they should be happy

Yes, you can install Vista and Office on all the systems in your home and legally activate them; at least up to 10 systems.

Legal? No. The license is for a single user.

Here is what I've been able to come up with. You get 1 product key per piece of software, and you can activate that software up to 10 times. If you have an install and want to re-activate it because it became unactivated, you can do that an unlimited number of times and it won't decrease the number of activations that you have. I'm assuming that falls under hardware changes that cause the install to need to be re-activated. If you want to start from scratch, then that will cost you an activation.

Quote:
We understand that TechNet subscribers have unique needs, so we have included special activation privileges for TechNet subscribers.

TechNet Subscription product keys can be used to activate up to 10 machines.
Although you must go through the activation process each time you reinstall on the same PC, your total number of activations will not be decremented.
For Windows, TechNet subscribers have a 60-day grace period before the product must be activated. If you will be reinstalling the software in less than 60 days, you do not need to activate it. Please note that Windows UpdateandWindows Genuine Advantage require that the installation be activated.
For Office 2003, TechNet subscribers have 50 launches before the product must be activated.
Software may be reinstalled on the same machine as many times as needed without reactivating it. However, if the hard disk is reformatted prior to reinstallation, reactivation may be required however the total number of activations will not be decremented.
They allow you to get evaluation software that isn't time-bombed, so you can evalute at it as long as you want. It is allowed for home use, as long as it is not in a production or staging environment. The best I could determine that as you can't use it to run a business.

Quote:
Can I use evaluation software received in my TechNet subscription at home?
In most cases, yes: the license grants installation and use rights to one user only, for evaluation purposes, on any of the userís devices. Each individual product, however, can have its own license agreement, which will control how many installations are allowed. Keep in mind that you may use the evaluation software only to evaluate it. You may not use it in a live operating environment, a staging environment, or with data that has not been sufficiently backed up. You may not use the evaluation software for software development or in an application development environment.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../ms772427.aspx

I'm going to be evaluating Vista Ultimate and Office 2007 on this pc, and I'll probably play around with Server03 R2 on one of my other pcs, and some of the other vistas on other pcs. It should be fine for me to do my homework and play games on this computer, since I am testing the features of the software. I just can't sue them if I lose all of my homework, or my game crashes, and I can't create applications to make money off of which testing the software, or run a business out of my home on the eval software.

If you get the single server license, then you can have multiple people use it legally, but that one is $500 and isn't direct downloads, so you get all of your discs in the mail. Same other rules apply.
