    Yeah, I've never met anybody who had a Technet account and didn't know about it. Something doesn't sound right there.
    I think somebody might be signing in with a Windows Live ID and thinking its Technet?

    I guess I've never been on my TechNet account since I signed up, but I do have one. I do not believe I'm subscribing though.

    Having said that, I guess I will wait for the unauthorized release of product keys....

    It must be nice to be able to pay for something and never use it.

    Sounds like it to me also. If he's true to form though he will just ignore your post/question all together and pretend he never saw it..

    You cannot obtain an account without subscribing. end of story. But your last sentence paints the true picture. I think you may have stepped over the Forum rules line?

    Yes but then he'd have to wait till everyone else gets it. He want's it Wednesday and is willing to pirate it to get it early...

    Was he?

    How's that for MS. Their biggest Windows 8 metro fans ,"customers" are only willing to use it if it is FREE! Hahahaahh...

    At least those of us BEGGING for the Default direct boot to desktop mode are willing to pay for our Windows software.
