    Work paid for it. I'd never have gone down that route on my own. The Technet license I could afford, the MSDN one's a little out of my league.

    As for discounts, if you do a quick google search you'll find various voucher codes popping up to offer between 20% - 40% off.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, it also entitles you to two free Microsoft support calls (normally about 250 each I believe)

    Renewal is the same price.

    Basically what happens is that when you first buy you get a pack of all the discs. That's the library, training stuff, and software.

    You then get a few discs sent each month with the updates. If you renew, you just keep on getting those few discs each month. If you let it expire and then buy a new one, you get the original pack sent out again with all the latest discs.

    Or you can always go down the download route, which is a better option price-wise, and you can always burn your own discs.
