    Is this also possible from europe? Since i’m looking for the direct download version there is no difference for me where i purchase it..

    But i can’t find a code for europe and with the dollar/euro it’s more then twice as expensive.

  2. Matt Hester says:

    Unfortunately this offer is U.S. only.  I will forward on your request to see if we can get this offered opened up worldwide.

  3. Bas says:

    Btw, if so i can imagine you would definately win the little contest 🙂 Probably a lot of people here that would at least like to try for that price…

    nd one more question, if i would get a subscription with payment through an american friend, would my european IP# interfere when downloading?

    Thank you for the sub discount Matt.

    While I am not willing to say that is totally legit, and still checking, it would be something to look into.  We have given a lot of feedback about making this internaltional and it all has to do with the different groups that run the technet program in different areas of the world.

  8. Eric Stelter says:

    I am not sure of the standard TechNet Plus direct price, if it is $249.00 then the promo code discount did not work… there was no line item "discount" printed on the final invoice. Regardless, $249 is still very reasonable.

  9. Matt Hester says:

    Good morning Eric,

    $249 is actually the discounted price, they are normally $349.  I agree as for reasonable when you look at the cost of a support call is $250 and you get two with the subscription.

    I attended TechED 2006 in boston they had a 50% off technet plus discount code, (but it was only active 10days and I had to actually go to the technet booth at teched to get the code) and I had to sign up as a new account.

    if anyone is attending teched in spain (europe) right now (11/05 – 11/16/07) you should have a least a 30% off code. please post it here (this may only apply to europe not USA)  

  11. Matt Hester says:

    Thanks for the info Kristy and thank you for all the plugs on this blog.  The program is going really well!  Look for some exciting announcements about this program in the near future!

    I just bought a new subscription for TechNet Plus Single User – English DVD. It was $500. plus tax. Promo code didn’t work. I am disappointed in South Carolina.

    Great price, thanks!  For anyone in the industry, that is on the edge about purchasing, DO IT.  There is no better way to get to be the best at what you do other than HANDS-ON EXPERENCE, people.  With **Ware being a free product to have several OS’s and development platforms running on a single box, you can set-up your own network using literally a single core 2 duo box, with a decent amount of RAM.  If you have basic understanding of technology, this is YOUR CHANCE to get your feet wet in all the newest outstanding technologies that Redmond is turning out, for an infinite fraction of what each product would cost to license.  

    I have subscribed for a number of years on-and-off, and this tool has helped me get where I am today.  As for you people that are having udnertones about sneering about ‘Evaluation Only’ – don’t install this at a client, or at a friend’s house.  MICROSOFT IS EXTENDING US A VERY CHEAP WAY TO LEARN THEIR OS LINES, AND OPERATIONS MANAGER, ETC.   This is almost unheard-of given their pricing on MSDN and similar subscriptions in the THOUSANDS of dollars.  Don’t abuse it and force Microsoft to cancel or increase pricing on this program, or lock it down to the point where e                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                very time I make a new VM, I need to call and beg a call center rep.    You would be shooting me and a lot of others in the foot, so to speak.  Thank MS by honoring their terms.
