    "…and only while supplies last so act now"

    Wow, I didn’t know MS could run out of Server 2008!  And Rev you really think that most people that would take this course doesn’t have access to the software already?

    I think the offer is nice, but I really don’t see it as a driver like it is meant to be, but maybe I am wrong.

  4. Offers like this tend to get more individuals in classes (non company sponsored) they wouldn’t normally take.

    Offer is good, it will get more into classrooms.

    But, there are some, like me, there are past the initial exams 640+642. Why does the offer not extend beyond these exams?

    I have not seen any detail on the specifics. Maybe I already know the answer correct me if I am wrong please, all a person needs to due is to go to Microsoft learning portal and take any one of the courses that is mentioned and you will be mailed a copy of the server 2008. May I ask are the courses free of charge.

  9. says:


    You need to take an in-person classroom course (choose from one in your area as listed on this site: to qualify for the offer…the classes are not free.

    Schutzengel, thanks for the german lesson and yes I made it home safe! Congratulations on your exams – see you next year at TechEd, I hope!

    M, it takes a crazy amount of orchestration to get this kind of offer out the door, so I think they had to limit it in some ways to make sure it could happen at all! I know we’d love to make it applicable to everyone. Sorry!

    I Saw the news for free Windows Server 2008 classroom training. this is good for all.

  15. Shameem Mohamed says:

    hai ,what is the procedure for recieving the free software WS2008???

  16. tom says:

    This is full version? Or NFR, 240-day trial?

  17. Jim K says:

    Everyone needs to take a step back and reread the info in this post.

    You only get the software if you attend a class

    Attending the class is not free

    Microsoft is not going to just send you the software, you need to attend a class first, which you must pay for.

    What part of this is so difficult to understand?

  18. this entity works with training and developing and capacitation of people to use ms systems as networks solution and others.

      I thank you for this oportunity!
