7 for $30
Apple has always been strong in the educational market, but over the last decade-and-a-half, Microsoft has bitten deep into Apple's share with cheap software.
Now that the Mac is gaining overall market share, Microsoft is fighting for students with cheap versions of Windows 7 for as little as $30. You can't even get a one-quarter keg of cheap beer for that amount!
All you need to qualify is an .edu e-mail address or a valid way to prove you're a student. The best part? Thirty bucks gets you Home Premium or Windows 7 Pro, not the low-end stuff.
What about the rest of us? Looks like we'll be paying four times as much.
