Windows 7 SP1 download links go live for TechNet, MSDN users

Windows 7 SP1 download links are now live for MSDN and TechNet subscribers, so head to your downloads page and grab the updated ISOs. Public availability will follow on February 22nd, and end users will be able to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 via Windows Update or download an installer.

Office 2010 RTM now available for download by Technet, MSDN subscribers

While you won't be seeing it on retail shelves just yet, Microsoft has flicked the Office 2010 switch on MSDN and Technet. This morning, the beta version was finally replaced with the RTM and both 32 and 64-bit downloads are now available.

Remember how I drew the similarity between Jack Napier dumping cash on the unsuspecting rubes of Gotham and Microsoft opening Technet to anyone who filled out a form? Well, the poisonous gas has been released. According to a lengthy phone call between blogger Kristan Kenney and a Technet support rep, you weren't supposed to have access to that offer. If you downloaded keys or software and...

Microsoft gets drunk, gives away Technet subscriptions

Ok, so I can't actually back that title up with any actual evidence, but when Microsoft pulls a Jack Napier and starts throwing money on the people of Gotham, you assume something is up. Regardless, they're handing out free subscriptions to TechNet Plus - which normally run $349. Sign up via the appropriate link for the US, Canada, or the UK (readers in other countries may be out of luck),...

Microsoft launches Linux website

Microsoft is at Linuxworld (in flame retardant suits no doubt), and they've already taken the wraps off their free version of Virtual Server. So what's left? How about a site on how MS is trying to make all their toys play nice with Linux?
