The Basement: Software for students & hardware discounts
FACT: On the 31st of March Microsoft is stopping the discount scheme for students and parents. After this date you will no longer be able to receive up to 90% off Microsoft software! The Basement has always been the place for students to buy the cheapest computer software, so don't miss out on these last few weeks to grab a bargain.

Is that 100%? I remember reading about it at Software4Students, but I thought I had read somewhere that it'd still be available but only via Microsoft's own web store. What that means in terms of actual % discount though I don't know...
EDIT: can't find anything to support my apparently false memory... damn...

How do they know whether or not you have children? Do you have to post a picture?

When you create an account, you have register the name of your child and say which educational institution you child attends. I have no idea whether they ever cross check this information... or if they even can legally (they probably say in the T&Cs that you are authorising them to do so)

I wonder if that's down to the system being abused or Microsoft wanting more profits

There's a thread on this from last month: Changes to Student licencing for home use of Office 2010 / Windows 7
Post #8 is a response from Microsoft.

Might be worth trying to merge these threads somehow?
