Microsoft to Provide Tech Software to Students for Free

Microsoft plans to allow college and high school students to receive key technical software for free, in a bid to familiarize students with Microsoft's software.

The program, called DreamSpark, aims to make several programs available to students worldwide for free; Microsoft has begun rolling the program out to college students in several countries, and will expand the program to other countries later this year. Microsoft also plans to make the program available to high school students.

In a speech at Stanford University on Tuesday, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates will disclose the program has rolled out to an estimated 35 million students Belgium, China, Finland, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and the U.S.

Specifically, the software being offered for free includes:

  • Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition
  • Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition
  • Expression Studio (including Web, Blend, Design and Media)
  • SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition
  • Windows Server, Standard Edition

Students will also have access to Microsoft's Xbox development tools, the XNA Game Studio 2.0, as well as a 12-month free membership to the XNA Creators Club.
