Looks like Microsoft just added Windows Server 2008 to their software that is free through Microsoft Dreamspark. (https://downloads.channel8.msdn.com/)

They previously had Server 2003 available, and have other things available as well.

Don't forget that they still have The Ultimate Steal (http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-us/default.aspx) still going on too. Office '07 Ultimate might not be worth the $500 it normally costs retail, but I find it pretty hard to argue the $60 price.

My college(Oakland University) wasn't on their list either. I signed up a long time ago, but i remember i had to go through journeyed.com to be verified.

Just be forewarned, its almost 1.75GBs to download, and the download manager seems to be a bit slow.

You can actually be a High School Student ... when you get to JourneyEd.com you can say that you're a HS student and all you need is to scan a copy of your Student ID card

If only the Ultimate Steal was available for high school students.

Still looks interesting though, and the Windows Server 2008 might come in handy...
