Hello.

I was told about educational prices of Windows 7 for students on
http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/software/windows/default.aspx ...
Do they exist for professors/faculty members and with retail copies
(64-bit editions: Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate)? I only saw
upgrade offers for Pro.

Thank you in advance. :)

Yes. Faculty, staff, anybody with access to a school IT department. I got
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 upgrade for $15, and I ain't no student. For some
reason, there aren't any full install versions, only upgrades. You'd
think they would want to catch first time users with the offer. There
are several ways to do a clean install with the upgrade version, if
necessary. I did.

Darn, no retail/full install versions. Also, can they be used at home
for personal usages?

But google software4students for another alternative if you are in the
UK
Ah. USA for me. Aren't those students only for students? Do they work
for faculty members like teachers/professors for their home personal PCs?

From that site teachers can also purchase, and so can the parents of
students!
