Microsoft UK Education Free Stuff but not an App

I have been asked a lot for the links in my free Windows App. As some don’t as yet haven’t upgraded. So whilst that is happening I thought I would list all the links in that App, that can be accessed in a non Win 8 environment. What this exercise proved was that Apps are fantastic for consolidating information in a simple accessible form. So my advice is get Windows 8, download the Windows 8 Free App - . In the meantime here are the links in that app.
