  1. I’ve been using the Microsoft Developer’s Network Academic Alliance (MSDNAA) scheme for a year or two now; it allows me as a student to access software like this, along with things like Microsoft SQL server, Windows 2000/Server 2003/XP/Vista, Groove, SharePoint, Exchange Server etc.

    I don’t see why this isn’t just part of MSDNAA
