So basically I heard today that with a CJP card (a Dutch card for cultural activities etc.) I can download Visual Studio Professional from DreamSpark. It was all simple, I went to www.dreamspark.com, logged in, entered my card number, and all of a sudden I was able to download Visual Studio Professional Edition free of charge.
I'm just curious to know how this will affect anybody, mostly financially? Will I really have it free of charge? Will my school eventually pay the bill? I have some kind of feeling that Microsoft is not giving away such products completely for free.
