MSDNAA seems to be the best kept secret in the Computer Science Department at my university because it’s been almost 3 years and I’ve found out about it just now. I think I know why too. The sys-admin has to manually burn each CD (yes, I said CD, not DVD). Windows Vista, which I will be getting through MSDNAA through my university, comes on a whopping 5 CDs. They need to setup a server with the ISO so that we can download and burn them ourselves.

    Yeah, I was also surprised to find out that it existed. Since then I have told all my friends about it, most of whom, as expected, did not know about it. What’s more interesting is that some schools also have this available to other programs–business, for instance. Unfortunately, in those cases most of the students aren’t aware of it either, and what is even worst is that sometimes it is hard to find the people who administer it!
